An Apology Letter to Mother Nature

I am sorry, I know we are screwing up.

An Apology Letter to Mother Nature

Dear Mother Nature,

I am sorry, I know we are REALLY messing up here. I sit here at my desk looking out the window seeing a bright sunny sky while having my AC blasting. It is 85 degrees and it is October... I can tell we have pissed you off, making us suffer through another month of sweating.

I understand that this has been an ongoing issue of ignoring your warning signs, and you are now punishing us, some more than others. We are changing the composition of your master piece and that was never our right. We have made you hotter and for that I am sorry. Sadly, though we didn't realize it right away. Some of us still don't even realize it, and that's just a shame. The facts are here. The charts are made. We see the trend, I promise.

We see the numbers rising, and we see your increased anger. It comes in names like, Harvey, Irma, and Maria. It comes in drastically hot summers and nonexistent winters. I don't know what to say to you, except we will change. Regardless of the politics, those of us who are recognizing your signs are taking action, and we promise to make a change. It might not be easy, and it will take years of work, but I am done pissing you off. I hope the rest of them are too.

I'm sorry for taking you for granted for so long. I have learned my lesson.

p.s to all the rest of you lets all get it together and make sure this planet doesn't get any hotter. We need to control our greenhouse gases and stop messing with the ozone layer. I can't take the heat anymore or the crazy storms. I just want my four seasons back.

The Mets And Me

They may be the worst sometimes, but this baseball team has given me more than I could ask for.

On September 3rd, 2001, a sea of children littered my home's navy-carpeted den to watch baseball during my dad's 40th birthday extravaganza. A baseball game flickered on the TV, and a red and blue bubble of a scoreboard sat in the bottom right corner of the screen. The New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies were in a wild game at Veterans' Stadium. As I, a five-year-old boy with a jumble of curly blonde hair, sat in the back of the kid clump, I wondered which team I should root for. After a long debate with myself, I decided that I should root for the team that's winning (duh). But, as the ninth inning rolled around with the Phils maintaining a 7-5 lead, some magic occurred. The Mets put up five runs in one frame, stunning the Phillie fans in the room and winning the game 10-7.
