“Money and greed and selfishness took over the minds of people with the opportunity to set up and change things for a better future...”
I am sorry. For what we did to the air, what we put in the water, and what we did to the trees. I'm sorry that we did not think ahead, that we didn't think about your future and only thought about the money changing hands, about the money we would save and forgot to calculate the true cost of it all. We let our choices back you into a corner with little choice but to solve the problems that we ourselves created. We are killing ourselves to lower prices only to raise the price for you and make your lives harder, make your health worse, and leave you with less of a future.
Most of all, we left you with nothing to hope for, only a battle for your immediate future and forcing you to fight for the chance that generations after you will be able to survive. Money and greed and selfishness took over the minds of people with the opportunity to set up and change things for a better future, and spent more time and energy silencing those fighting for the future rather than fixing the problems that were already beginning to appear.
Instead of a future, we have gone and left you with a struggle, and for that I cannot apologize enough.
