To the future,

First, I hope this letter finds you existing in a world that has been restored and renewed. I hope that the human inhabitants have found their way back to humble beginnings. I hope that the world has begun to spin again in all of its green and safe air glory.

It is currently 12/06/2021 and I can honestly say I am scared. I am so scared for the future and what that looks like. I am scared that my little sisters and the people that come after us have to live in a wasteland. Understanding that the ocean is becoming too warm for the sea life. Understanding that most of the natural disasters that occur are in fact not natural, but man made by way of our choices. Understanding the impact that my day-to-day choices have on the environment. These are some of the things that make me scared for the future. The world is quickly approaching a point of no return, but there are ways to change it. Knowing that there are ways to change the current course of climate change is what gives me hope.

My promise to the future (specifically my sisters) is to keep having these conversations. My college course (global environmental) is what started the fire in me to make conscious decisions in my daily life, with the knowledge that every action has a reaction. My hope is that by continuing to have these hard and tiring conversations, it will spark something in others. I promise to make more environmentally ethical choices in my personal life that I know will make a difference. I promise to help those who are disproportionately affected by climate change. I promise to apply myself in any way possible that will make a change to not only my current moment, but will have a continous ripple into the future.
