To our future generations,

It is a dangerous time here in 2017. We are at pivotal period in the history of humanity but more importantly the history of our planet. It took us too long to realize our resources are not infinite and that we must change our present for the sake of the future. We have lost sight of the value of nature and made many mistakes, which have led us to our current state. In this crucial time, I want to let you know that I am working for you. While it may seem we do not care about you today based on some of our elected officials, our policies regarding climate change, and our practices as humans, I want you to know that some of us do care and we are working towards a better future for you. We knew about climate change last century and did little about it but I truly believe real change is coming. Many challenges lie ahead on our way to global sustainability but I do not think it is an impossible feat. I personally promise to work for not only you but also the planet I hope to share with you. I refuse to hope for the best and let you inherit our mistakes.

I have had the privilege of exploring some extraordinary places on this planet and it is hard to accept that you might not be able to do the same. When you read this, I hope that you all have the Earth available to you as a safe and healthy home. I hope you experience all of the wonders the Earth has to offer without feeling too heavy of a burden that is sure to be on your shoulders. I promise to do what I can to ensure that happens. In the chance that you read this in time where climate change is still something of debate or we have not worked hard enough to reverse our harm, I urge you to keep fighting. Keep working towards a healthy planet and global sustainability. Until then, I will fight for you and our planet by educating myself and those around me, minimizing my own footprint and speaking out politically.
