To the future Lilly,

I hope that people finally started understanding how serious the climate crisis is.  I am writing this message in the year 2019 and currently, we only have a few short years before we go into a complete crisis. That is, assuming you don’t consider our current situation already a crisis.  The human race is not only killing itself but other species and the actual earth itself. For many people, the worst thing they can imagine right now is not having the convenience of using a straw or driving five miles to work, and the thought of biking seems ridiculous. I am a problem myself, I enjoy my long hot showers, and sometimes still use single-use plastics. But I am trying, and not everyone can say the same about themselves.

I believe that once we stop being ridiculously greedy about what things we want and how much money we have, and realize that the only reason it matters so fucking much is that we have decided that it matters so fucking much.

I hope that things are on the way to be improved by the time youre reading this, and not on the way to being worse.  I also hope that you got to sail for a long time and continued to really like rock climbing. Do not get stuck in the endless cycle of work. Please go out and explore if possible.

Dear Amara and Uma,
