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.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Sadie,

You are young and have a rich future ahead of you. I am retired and aiming for a high quality of cultural life and comfort with whatever time remains to me. I do not want to see a world whose elders sacrifice your future for their short-term needs and personal gain. So it’s up to you and me to speak out.

 

To my precious grandchildren, Emma, Maya, Maddie and Will,

With love and a great hope for the future, a future that will be healthy and sustainable for you, my precious grandchildren.

 

Dear Oliver,

I am getting your father on board too so that we can double charge this together.

 

Chers Enfants,

Chers Enfants,

 

Dear tomorrow,

If there’s one thing young people have learned while quarantining, it’s that Gen Z holds so much power and is capable of a lot more than we think. We’ve created a community that has united us all and started to bring about change for the good of our futures. Now, with the help of Gen Z (and of course, people of all ages), we have the power to save our home, the Earth.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will encourage everyone to get OUT of their cars and onto public transit.

 

Pick up your trash wherever you go!

 

Dear Kids,

I know it’s long past time to wake up. You deserve a future in which drought, famine, and war are not all your children ever know; the choices my generation makes now will determine your future.

 

Dear Matthew, Sam, and Sophie,

There is a promise in the Bible: ‘I shall restore the years that the locusts have eaten’ and that points to a promise of complete healing and restoration. But until that comes I intend to do my best to ‘save the planet’ in whatever way I can, and I encourage you to do the same.

 

I want to tell you a story. Yes, another one.

Mankind has always been able to deal with the greatest challenges it’s faced and this will not be the exception. My message to you is: find that passion and give it your all. ‘Till your legs give out.

 

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 Nuriel, Eliran, and Rotem,

Sometimes I think we will never make it, but I know we must keep trying.
