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

Dear Nuriel, Eliran, and Rotem,

I hope this finds you well!

As you know I am doing what I can to help sustain a world where you to can breath clean air, drink clean water, and eat unpolluted food.

I am fighting, unfortunately that is the word, with millions of others against a tidal wave of greed, selfishness and apathy to try to slow down our supersonic frenzy towards the iceberg on our titanic planet earth. We have so many problems to solve: war, slavery, injustice, disease, hunger, and climate change. Sometimes I think we will never make it, but I know we must keep trying. Fortunately many of these problems are linked so that solving one of them, for example growing organic food in a public space improves health, solves hunger, poverty, and climate change, all in one.

I hope when you read this, you still have some nature, and all the good things we had, and that you have found a way into a sustainable and happy future existence.

Love from Abba

Dear future generations,

I pledge to you now that I will work tirelessly and with all my willpower so you don’t have to live in a world where you have to worry about the next storm.

 

To my fellow adventurers,

Dear Gabriel,

One day ten or twenty years from now, when you look back from the future, you will be able to clearly see the entire path.

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.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to clean the earth.

 

Dear Eleanor,

It seems silly to saddle yourself with guilt for something that hasn’t happened yet. I don’t want to do that. As of today, I don’t really feel guilty. I guess I just want to make sure I keep doing more, so that when you read this, and ask what I’ve done since then, I can still feel good about my efforts.

 

Dear Grown up Alton and Dot,

The most important thing in my life is you, which means that as your mom – I am doing my very best to make sure that when you read this letter, Earth is a cleaner and safer place for you and your children.

 

Para minha querida filha, Vitória,

Consegue compreender que estamos aqui de passagem e que temos por obrigação apenas tomar emprestado, evitado excessos e principalmente agradecer.

 

Dear Cherie,

I promise to plant 5 trees every year just to make sure I don’t leave a carbon footprint.
