Dear son,

Sorry that you have to experience and grow up in the world past generations created. People’s greed and selfishness may have ruined the beautiful nature that I got to see but you may never see. I want you to know that we tried our best to fix the mistakes of my parent’s generation, but it was not enough. I grew up to watching people try to save the rainforest and the sea turtles, but you might not ever see one in your life time. There were just too many problems going on in people’s lives to focus on the environment. Hopefully your generation will be smart enough to find a way to fix the problems we made.

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 daughter and son,

Dear Finley,

I wonder if in 2050 we will be looking at a future where fear from the changes at hand has caused people to hate rather than love and provide hope. Perhaps in that world we will we no longer comprehend the biblical texts in a meaningful way. Will climate change be the end of the epoch of God?
