Seemingly regular American high school teacher Bruce Farrer, set up, and has for decades, continued to set a wonderful assignment for his pupils. Basically he asks his 9th graders to hand write a 10-page letter to their future selves, disclosing all of their future hopes and dreams, which he then posts to them after 20 years. The point of the assignment was to allow the pupils – twenty years older – to look back and see how they thought about their worlds then, and to see if they accomplished what they desired in their letters.
It’s an authentic piece of youth simply there to take you to a place that can become emotionally and visually vague as you get older, but this letter marks youth for the individual as something extra precious, one ex-pupil described it as a keepsake.
