Dear Nephew/Niece,

I hope this letter finds its way to you.

I am writing to tell of what we have in this world, and I wish that it stays the same way. But looking at the pace with which the world have been changing, I fear that my wish is not enough to help it stay the same.

Right now, its April 20, 2018, I am in San Jose, California. The air is fresh to breathe and sky clear enough to daze for long at night. There are lots of species of animals, and Elephants and Giraffe are not endangered yet. We have many different species of birds that travel according to different seasons. Currently there is almost enough resources to keep the world running and provide decent electricity and ways to cook and live, but I think it will soon be over.

One of my biggest concerns are the glaciers, I really hope you can see them. They are huge chunk of snow that have been accumulated for hundreds of years. They provide constant cooling to our planet, but if they are not there anymore, I am sorry for not able to change that. I believe it is extreme hot climate.

If the things have continued the way it is currently, I am sorry for the hardships that you are facing. But I really hope it changes for the good.

I wish you a very happy future. And I wish that you can enjoy the environment and its beauty the way I did.

Your Uncle

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.
