To the future,

It is currently April 2018. When I think of the future of our planet, I like to be hopeful. I am hoping the generations ahead do not have to suffer from the consequences of past generations. This is a difficult concept to grasp because we can already see great damage that has been done to our planet. It’s no secret that people tend to take advantage of the planet we live in because it won’t matter to them what happens in the future.

Today, we currently have President Donald Trump in office who does not believe in climate change. A person like him has a lot of power in influencing people. This is why I believe educating the youth is so important. Education is one of the most valuable resources that we can give to the next generation. Educating them on how to treat our planet and what they can do to help will make a change on how the future will turn out.

I hope in the future we are able to take advantage of the resources that we have. Right now in 2018, we have incredible amounts of technology and it will only become more advanced in the future. By then I am hoping we have found ways to help preserve our environment and animals and keep its people healthy.

I wish a safe and clean planet for your future. I hope you are able to do things that we are able to do today. I hope there are still animals that are around today. And lastly, I hope we are able to keep sustainability not only in the environment, but also economically and socially.

Dear Nafia,

I also hope that your previous prayers have been answered. The way you wanted to create green jobs for your fellow city dwellers have been fulfilled already.

 

Dear Potential Future Kiddo,

To think that my choices of sustainable commuting, eating a plant based diet, and working on our City’s zero waste program likely pale in comparison to the impact of not having a baby is nothing short of devastating.  Does it make me a bad environmentalist to honor my maternal instincts?
