A Curious Case for Caring for the Future

Like many people (maybe even you), I have kids. I have two young kids that I totally adore. I want them to grow up healthy, happy, and successful. I want this world to be one that in proud that they're living in. Every parent wants to have the peace of mind that their kids will have a better life than they themselves did. 

They shouldn't have to live in a world of fear, despair, and hopelessness. They shouldn't have to worry about the world ending in their lifetime, whether it be a natural disaster, economic meltdown, zombie apocalypse, or inexperienced/fear-mongering/fact-handicapped government leaders. 

They deserve to live in a world where opportunities and possibilities spill out everywhere. They deserve to live in a more just world where they can have a quality of life higher than mine.  The future should be something I look forward to, not fear, especially as a father. 

As a parent, I'm devoted to making this world, not just a better place, but a wonderful place for my kids and your kids to grow up in. It all starts with my daily actions. Every little thing I do affects the future. It's not just in me, it's in all of us. 

Even if you don't have kids, you (and everyone else) should care enough to want to make this world a better place for ourselves, our friends and family, and future generations.
