To The Future,

At this point, I don’t believe there is any way to tell for sure what the world will be like in fifty years. If the globe manages to reverse course and begin undoing decades of damage, hopefully it will be enough. I’m doing my part, working hard to be more conscious of my carbon footprint, driving electric cars and charging with solar panels. Even if this doesn’t work, or we move to another planet, I won’t lose hope. I’m confident that if you guys stay educated, stay informed, that a mistake this grave will never happen in the future. Weirdly, I hope no one ends up reading this. Not because I’m embarrassed or ashamed, but because I hope our work begins to show results and this letter will never be relevant. If we work hard enough, and keep our sanity, I still have confidence that all life on this beautiful planet can be saved or revived. Dear future, I hope you never have to read this.
