Dear children,

I write this letter to you as a record of my actions under the conditions we currently live in. It has been a difficult time in this year of 2022. There is a war in Europe, global warming around the world, racism, and homophobia, among other harmful issues that affect us. Poverty is growing, prices are rising and people are not getting the basics to live. Because of politics, the poorest are losing even the right to study, to get something better, while the richest are getting richer. 

But as they say: we never give up, and regardless of all these adversities, there are many people fighting for our good.

My children, I promise you to do my best today. I will try to avoid waste, I will practice sustainability, and share what I have with as many people as possible. I will not forget about the hardships I went through, and I will do my best to make a better future.

Despite all the difficulties, we are from a family whose principles are honesty and love for others, and that’s what I want to share with you. The future can always be better, and I hope you will always continue contributing to it.

Sincere Blessings of Light, Love and Peace,

As you’ve grown older, I’ve become increasingly aware that protecting you means more than ensuring your short-term safety. It also means ensuring that you’ll have a safe planet to live on.
