Dear grandchildren,


You were not born yet, but I’m very concerned about your future. Not just yours, but all our future generations. I’m so proud of you because if you are learning this letter it’s because you are interested in your future and the future of our planet. Unfortunately, now we don’t know how to deal with consumerism. Our planet has been suffering the consequences of our material wills. It’s a shame to see how the human race can do such bad things to have what they want.

So, please love one another. Do not do to others what you wouldn’t like being done with you. If every person in this world could understand this principle, wars, pandemics, poverty, and famine, wouldn’t exist. We are one race, the human race; there is no difference between us. Cultivate a sound mind and do not leave room for bad thoughts. Be careful, everything you sow one day you will reap, whether good or bad.

Now I’m teaching your mom, so she could teach you about these things one day. You are not too small, you can do great things! The creation has a plan for you, a huge purpose. You can make a difference wherever you go! Be brave and kind!
