To “I” before “U”,

You messed up. Yes, you. Not I. I actually assumed responsibility for my actions. I did everything as I should do. I buy local produce, I recycle, pick up litter, I also do my best to bring my own cup to Starbucks for my coffee so I don’t waste a cup. There is no “We” messed up. Nah. Because when you say “We” you are saying “I” didn’t do my part.

I hope you are pissed. I am not saying the following to make you feel good about yourself. I am not a parent by any means and I am not wiser or more intelligent than you. What I am is angry. Angry that people are so stuck on themselves that they choose to not do anything now. This letter is to you. You who thinks their life is the center of attention. You whom judge others but do not look at their own faults. This letter is a reminder of that nagging voice that sits in the back of your mind that guilt’s you for not doing the right thing. I hope this letter reaches “you” now because I may not exist in the future to tell you otherwise.

Dear future generations,

Past generations took all the trees, polluted all the water, fished all the fish, and hunted all the animals so that there’s almost nothing nice left.

 

I promise to stop eating junk food.

 

Dear future generations,

Be fearless – do not be afraid to talk to each other and do not be afraid to fail.

I am witnessing climate change in a way that I do not like, and I do not know how can I stop it.

 

My grandchildren,

I promise to do my very best to educate your parents as best I can.

 

Dear future me,

If we don’t stop cutting down trees for agriculture and to build houses then the future generations will not think about trees when they hear the word Earth.

 

We will look back on our time here and ask, “What did I do?”

If we truly live our present moment, maybe you’ll have a future.
