To future generations,

It is hard to comprehend how the world will be like as it continually falls further into the Anthropocene. It is only then; that we will understand the extent of damage that we have caused our planet and how foolish past generations were by not ensuring its security.

I find it hard to focus on my future, knowing that the consequences of climate change will have a greater impact on it than through my own life choices.

It is unfortunate to experience such a time in our history, when there is much at risk and so many chose to ignore the issues. It is demeaning to see the many contributors of these changes continue their habits, despite knowing the damage they are causing for current and future generations. It is painful to watch the world waste its precious resources to meet the never-ending demand from our consumer culture.

I hope that in the future, people will begin to understand the importance of taking care of one another and their planet. I hope that at some point, everyone can serve a purpose that respects the planet and their humanity. Most of all, I hope that the issues we are currently facing can be solved by those of your generation and that you can forgive us for the burden we put on you.

Best regards,

Haden
