To whomever finds this letter in 2050,

Hi! Life in 2020 hasn’t really been great so far. Everyone’s been stuck inside for the past month or so due to the coronavirus. It’s not been fun, and everyone is getting a bit antsy being cooped up for a while. Some people believe that this will be the end of the world, but I whole heartedly disagree. From what I’ve seen, when people do end up interacting with one another, they’ve been kinder. The environment is also doing a bit better now that people are off the roads. A lot of people end up recovering from the virus, but because it can hurt the more vulnerable we stay inside. This is very important because it shows that unlike apocalypse movies, real people are far more empathetic and don’t rely on “survival of the fittest”.

I believe that in the future, this time will teach how important the Earth and the people around us are. The world is kind of a mess right now, but that doesn’t mean we can’t learn from our mistakes and do our part to help our climate and the world we live in. We should protect the planet we’ve been gifted, and take care of it as best as we can. I promise to walk and bike more places, conserve energy whenever possible, and research more ways I can help combat climate change from home. Maybe it’s the naivety of a fifteen year old, but I believe that if everyone works together to help preserve our Earth, then we can leave a beautiful planet for generations to enjoy. And that is a truly amazing thought to think about.
