While I will work my hardest to create any positive change I can, you must continue this quest. You cannot give up hope, and you must always remember that the beauty on this Earth is worth saving.

To my future Niece,

I am writing to you today. February 27th, 2017, with much hope in my heart. I am sure the world is very different in 2050, but there are certain aspects of the current world that I am going to put my life work towards preserving, so that you and your children may enjoy it.

Your mother and I grew up adoring nature, playing and biking and hiking. It was where our imaginations were free and where we found the purest joy in life. However, where I stand today, there are many things threatening the little bit of true wilderness we have left. Climate change, currently, is just beginning to show its teeth. Biodiversity loss is at an all time high, rising sea levels are washing away island villages. It is February, yet last week I was sitting outside in shorts, enjoying 70 degree weather. The course our world is on today is frightening, and if we do not change soon, I cannot imagine what our planet will be like when you read this letter.

However, there is hope. Amazing discoveries and solutions are created every day. More and more, I see younger generations, such as mine, coming together to fix what our ancestors began. I know that this trend will continue, and I can’t wait to see the amazing ideas that come from people like you. While I will work my hardest to create any positive change I can, you must continue this quest. You cannot give up hope, and you must always remember that the beauty on this Earth is worth saving. I look forward to the time I will spend with you our in nature, and hope that someday, together, we will witness humanity as a whole learn to respect and look after the earth, just as you and I do.

Lovingly.
