I was here.

September 1st, 2016, 4pm

It was 21.6°C.

Hi futurelings, human or otherwise. I want to share with you that today is a beautiful day. Here in the city of Toronto, Ontario, Canada, the sun is shining through gentle clouds and my skin feels warm as I sit at my desk and work on my daily projects. I feel grateful to be alive.

As a human, much of my life has been spent learning things and trying to understand myself. I wonder if you can relate to that. As species I feel like we are on the brink of significant change - maybe in 10,000 years when these words are decoded from this nickel plate and our stories are opened, you will see just how far our race has come.

I was here… We were here - it wasn’t perfect. But often on days when the sun was shining gently we would stop our striving and take moments to notice little things. The breeze. Flowers. Our friendships with each other. We would be grateful, and maybe call our parents to say hello.

Thank you for reading our stories. I hope the sun is shining gently for you too.

Angie, Kaiton, David Wade, Craig and 2 others said thanks.
