To whomever it may concern,

There are many things that I would like to tell my future self and the new generation about what life is like now, and how much it is going to change in a matter of time. I remember listening to the stories my grandparents would tell me about how society was during their era of existence. In fact, this was the time when automobiles were widely popular! There were many different types of vehicles such as muscle cars, race cars, steam engines, etc… However, this significant innovation that became essential to our everyday lives, is actually negatively affecting our environment. I remember my grandma told me that I could be the change and help this world heal by learning how to save the air quality for the betterment of our existence here on earth.

As I continued on with my education, I was exposed to the issues of how much we as humans are responsible for the pollution in the atmosphere, and how it may put other living organisms at risk of being extinct.

We have the freedom and responsibility to create our own essence. I believe that every action that we do, will accentuate who we are. Now, I promise that you will be the change for the sake of our humanity. You do not have to put in a lot of work to make a difference in the world. It’s the small things that build up and make a huge difference. For example, turning of the water faucet when not in use, unplugging electronics, switching to eco-friendly light bulbs; these are actions that not only will help conserve energy, but it also saves a lot of money as well!

I believe that nature handed us what we needed in order to survive. We need to be grateful and remember that love is possible. If at any time in the future there is not enough love, give back, give love… Without love there is only a matter of time of our existence. If you care about something you have lets say, a house you just bought with all of your money, you would do what you can to take care of it so that it lasts longer. But if not, then it would be damaged and unlivable. I hope you take this into consideration and love where you live.
