To My Future Children,

I am currently learning about the ways humans have impacted their environment through history how these behaviors and ideas of nature have led us to do irreversible damage to our world. It is scary to think that the person we elected as our president does not acknowledge this problem and is changing policies that will threaten the future of Earth and its habitants. It has taken us a long time to start to create laws and policies aimed at reducing destruction and climate change and even longer to realize our significant impact on the environment. I worry sometimes that maybe it is impossible to have everyone on the same page and working towards improving the future for our children.

I am also learning about the different groups and technologies that are already tackling the many problems we face and this is where I feel confident in our ability to overcome our destructive nature. The people that are still hopeful and still passionate about our planet are the ones who inspire others of us and I think their attitude is part of the solution. Hope is more powerful than fear and when people feel hopeful there is a greater incentive to be involved.

I know that I want to be involved in environmental education so that everyone has the knowledge to be able to be a part of the changing attitude towards the way we interact with the natural world and to each other. I hope in the future we can all be working together across oceans and land to fix some of the issues we have created and living more sustainable lives so that we can continue to be a part of this beautiful planet. I also hope that there are still places people can go to feel connected to nature to find peace and inspiration. It is a gift that we get to experience life and it is important to feel good about leaving a greater Earth for our future generations.

Dearest Gray,

When I asked you why the purple Violet called to you, you told me it was “magic”. I hope that you can still find the magic of life. I hope, despite everything, it is still in abundance.

Dear tomorrow,

If there’s one thing young people have learned while quarantining, it’s that Gen Z holds so much power and is capable of a lot more than we think. We’ve created a community that has united us all and started to bring about change for the good of our futures. Now, with the help of Gen Z (and of course, people of all ages), we have the power to save our home, the Earth.

I hope that people are still enjoying the wonders that nature has to offer.
