Day 13: Issue a public apology. This can be as funny or as serious or as creative as you want it to be.
Dear future inhabitants of the world,
I’d like to issue a public apology on behalf of my species. In many ways, we’ve fucked up. (I have a feeling you’ve realized this by now.)
First and foremost, I’d like to apologize for the idiots who invented genetically modified (GMO) crops. As I am sure the planet’s climate has changed (sorry for that, too) I know the GMO crops are unable to evolve with the times. As such, you’re probably stuck with watery tomatoes that look good but taste bad. Your burgers come from corn fed beef and the folks who own Monsanto, DuPont and major agricultural businesses are laughing all the way to the bank.
Second, I’d like to apologize for the fact that technology has caused our kind to forget to speak in complex sentences, write eloquent letters (or write with a pen in general), and has robbed our species of attention spans, etiquette and imagination.
I hope you’ve got yourself some Malcolm Xs, George Orwells, Picassos, Beethovens and other magical visionaries.
PS- Never give up hope. It’s what’s kept the rest of us going for generations.
