To the future generation:

I’m 22 years old and about to graduate from college. It’s been a long journey and I have no idea how it’s going to go from here on out.

There are many changes happening in the world around us. It’s a confusing time because our president and his administration believe that climate change is a hoax, although we all know that is not. Perhaps it is a blessing in disguise that will help us come together to make a change because humanity is growing farther apart.

The world is cold but you can help make it better again. Love yourself, love those around you, love the Earth; it’s the only one we have. Stop worrying about things you think are beyond your control and start doing something about them. No voice is too small to be heard. Every action counts. Change starts slowly but it accelerates the more you believe in it and help drive it with your passion. You CAN make the world a better place. Never stop believing in yourself.

I promise I will do everything I can to pass a world on to you that you can live in without fear and with as few problems as humanly possible.

Dear Gabriel,

When the worst consequences of climate change still feel far away today, or the barriers to acting on climate change seem steep today, I do not think about today. I think about you, and your world when you are my age.
