To Aacia,

I’m so sorry so much stress and abundance precarious things have been handed to you and your generation.  It would be easy to ramble on the various negative impacts global climate change has on our land, animals, and way of life, but it’s harder to find a solution when the causes are greater than individual impact. I hope for you now (meaning the future) industrial industries have found a new way of attaining clean energy and everybody uses that energy.  Although, that seems like a stretch. I am doing my part everyday by using public transportation, limiting my car usage and walking, cutting down on water usage, and mindfully purchasing sustainable resources.  I want your life to not be filled with the stressors climate change infringes upon you. I love you so much and our earth so much.
