To the Future Generations,

With the recent election of Trump and the immoral policy changes he intends to enact, I’m angry and ashamed to be represented by the current U.S. government. His complete denial of the existence of climate change and his lack of support for programs like the EPA has made me very stressed and discouraged about our country’s future environmental policies. In fact, this entire presidency has really negated my view of the future of this country. Currently, I am enrolled in an Intro to Sustainability class and have met so many young people like me who want to make a difference for the environment and help save the planet! It really has calmed my fears and pushed me to really do something to spread awareness about our climate issues. As of recent, I’ve been working with so many friends to start something wonderful to enact change and help spread sustainable practices to all people. That has given me hope. I know that the world is changing so rapidly in both the environment and societally, that sometimes it’s hard to keep up, but remember that change is slow and hard to enact.

I hope the world is still a beautiful place by the time you get to live in it, and I’m sorry if it is not because of our slow realization of ruin. I want you to know that people cared and are learning to change, and are desperately trying to preserve the earth. If something similar is happening in your time, fight for what you believe in and never stop. Always take a stand, like I said the world is moving so quickly that sometimes it’s hard to keep up, but slow down and make your mark. If you truly believe your cause is worth it, do it.  Take a stand, never back down.

Best,  2017

To my dearest Gabriel,

What gives me hope is what is yet to come, what you will experience in your lifetime.

 

Dear My Future Child,

I want to sculpt a world for you where you can play outside without gas masks, an ocean to swim in without toxins, and a thick lively forest for you to wander.

 

To My Friends, Family and Future Grandchildren,

I realize my reflection of the past, current and future state of the environment paints a grim and pessimistic picture, but I feel optimistic in our ability to turn planet Earth’s fate around if we all work together and commit to making a change.

 

Dear Children,

I wish I had a crystal ball and could peep into it to see you all happy and safe in a world that nourishes you and that is also nourished by you, a world where the resources it provides are as valued as the people in it and not frittered away by greed and power.

You are so small. So innocent. So beautiful. For you and for everyone else, I will try harder.
