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,

Daddy.

Dearest Finlay,

I hope you are healthy and happy and that you feel supported by the ecosystem around you because we are all deeply truly interconnected. We depend on the earth to take care of us, and nature needs us to take care of her in turn. We all need each other.

 

Dear future loved ones,

As I sit here and write to you, I’d like to share with you something more horrifying than a few boos – our current home, Earth.

 

Dear Students,

I imagine at this point we have dropped our addiction to coal, gas, and oil and that our environment has made a turn for the better with the solar, wind, and other unimagined (at this point) alternative energy choices are in place.

 

To the wonder,

Dear tomorrow, thank you for letting me ride the wave of wonder that reaches toward you for all generations of all species to come.

 

Dear Future Explorers,

I am often faced with the question: why do I care so much about this pale blue dot that we inhabit?

 

Dear Children and Grandchildren,

I see a world full of hope fueled by the desire for change.

 

Dear Hailey and Lily,

We know about this. If we don’t fix this for you, it’s our fault.

 

Dear Abigail and Olivia,

What stories will you tell them about our generation? Will we be heroes or villains?

 

Dear Tara,

I am sitting in a classroom thinking about you. Which is rare for me. I hope that our family has taken some initiative to do something about changing society instead of building robots and large houses.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I’ll replace our lights with LED lights.

 

Dear Amara and Uma,

Maybe you heard about bats? Bats, the carriers of this disease that spread among us like wild fire. I love bats. When I was your age today, sitting in the evening on the back terrace of your grandparent’s home in Ibiza, hundreds of bats would play, dance and sing among the trees.

 

To My Children and My Future Grandchildren,

People are an amazing race and, if we have the will, I believe we have the ingenuity and resources to fix the harm we’ve done.
