An Apology For Your Existence

Dear newborns, toddlers, and first-graders of Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow,

I sincerely apologize for your existence. It was not your fault, nor any of ours we were born into such a problematic world.

You are now burdened with the crisis of climate change, the sting of enduring the hate for being born privileged, the pain of being born in less than enviable circumstances, and the strain of having to sincerely ponder you might be condemned to hell, or the the general wondering of your purpose on this massive floating rock.

It’d honestly be easier not to exist.

But since you are here, please make use of your life. Don’t waste time wondering about your purpose and live.


Sincerely, future you.
