To the future,

I’m currently sitting in my room in complete silence as I write this letter. When I’m by myself listening to sounds of nature, I feel most at peace. These are the moments I need in order to appreciate life and the world that we sadly take advantage of.

To be very honest, our planet is not in its best state. And to be really honest, if we as a society don’t educate ourselves, others, and take action, it will only get worst. It is a dream of mine to travel across the world, and explore the many forests, oceans, caves, islands, and mountains mother nature has selflessly given us. By the time you and myself read this, I hope I have accomplished those things because I’m sure it’s what I will need to help myself and others. But, most importantly, I hope YOU have the ability to explore these places of the world as well. Sea ice is melting, coral reefs are dying, the temperatures are rising, animals are dying, and people are making climate change more and more political each day.

I can’t find the words to express what humans are doing to this planet, and don’t get me wrong, I am guilty of not taking care of this planet as well as I should. It took education to become aware, but that’s the thing. That’s all it took. When one person becomes aware, they tell another person and it becomes a domino effect. And that’s all I ask of you, don’t be ignorant or blind to these issues because they’re happening right before your eyes and will affect your life in some way.

Now you’re probably wondering, what can I do to make this planet a better place? You can start by using your voice. Vote for leaders and policies that push towards a greener planet, eat a vegan diet (or eat less beef), carpool with your friends, family, co-workers, reduce the amount of plastic you use, use public transportation, and realize you’ve been given one life and one planet, so take care of it.

I hope it’s not too late and I hope you will lead this world to become a more sustainable, green, and healthy place.
