To my future children,

I grew up in Manhattan. The great concrete jungle. I cannot imagine living anywhere else. I know there are issues with emissions and cars, but there are also public bike systems, bike lanes, walking and numerous amounts of public transit that I would like to think helps keep our emission levels down. I wish there were more cities like New York, and I hope you get to visit all of them some day. I have travelled a decent amount, and I hope traveling and learning about other cultures and food and languages is still something that can be done.

Dear future generations,

It’s never too late to make a difference. Our actions have very real consequences. We can educate ourselves, learn from our mistakes, and take action. We can hold companies like big oil and big plastic accountable for their negative impacts on the environment. We can educate ourselves and others about what causes climate change and what actions we as individuals can take to lower our carbon footprints.

 

Dear Future Me,

I promise that I will change my behavior to benefit our trees.

 

Dear Future Grandchild,

We can learn a lot about how to treat others from stories that have been passed from generation to generation.
