To my future family,

Today, we live in a world where money controls everything. While I do not expect this to ever change, it means that people exist, knowing what they are doing to our precious planet, and continue to destroy it for a profit. People exist who adamantly deny that we as a human race are affecting the changing climate. People refuse to see the harm we are doing and how we can change it for the better. However, there is an even greater amount of people who strive to do something about it. I, for one, do what I can to make a change. I live and work for the purpose of seeing our beautiful planet transformed back into its state of natural beauty and balance, unharmed by the human race. I want to see salmon swim free up and down spawning rivers, without dams preventing them from reproducing. I want to see the orcas of my beloved San Juan Islands return in massive populations as they existed in the past, with plenty of salmon to feast upon. I want our dying coral reefs to bloom once again into gardens of life, feeding the entire ecosystem of the world’s oceans. I want our rainforests grow back to their former glory.

I have chosen a path in life that puts these goals at the highest of priorities. I plan to help others strive for change. I plan to create a sense of awareness, and an appreciation for the beautiful gift of nature and its unparalleled beauty and grace. I hope to help create a better world for you to live in. I challenge myself to educate not only myself, but others on the importance of sustainability. I try to be the change I wish to see in the world. I desperately hope that future generations live in a world that isn’t on the edge of collapse. I hope you can walk through forests of trees and wildlife, and swim in oceans full of fish and other marine life.

Unfortunately, as life on this planet exists today, nature is disappearing. Forests are being cut down, fish are being taken from the sea faster than they can replenish their own populations. More and more wildlife are becoming endangered of extinction. Fossil fuels continue to burn daily, tainting the atmosphere that exists to protect us. Sharks continue to be hunted for no purpose other than to harvest their fins for soup, and thrown back into the ocean to die. Ocean temperatures continue to rise, killing off our beautiful coral reefs. Ice from the poles of the planet continue to melt, decimating once massive and seemingly endless glaciers and ice masses.

In conclusion, I hope for nothing more than a better and cleaner world for you. I hope that nature is given a chance to heal. I hope that humans give themselves the chance to fix our past mistakes. I hope you live in a better world than the one I live in now.
