Dear Yasmine,

Today is wonderful. Like yesterday and the day when you will read my letter. Because every day lived in bliss is a wonderful day. I tried to teach you that loving others is a bliss, helping others is a bliss, sharing with others is a bliss. Now it is time to pass what you learned to the others. Our climate suffered for years from our ignorance. We were, as human beings, so selfish that we overloaded our environment with plastics in the ocean, air pollution, soil pollution, etc. We drifted from following our ancestors’ clean pathway, worst than that, we transformed their green lands into landfills. We were not able to control our love of money. So we started constructing and constructing until we hid the sky with our iron structures. We applied technologies to destruct the human kind by increasing the number of cars on the road. We become very strong, looking for eternity, more clever but more consumers than ever. I tried to teach you of the importance of being satisfied with what you had within your hands and by  contributing to the restoration of simple life based on respecting our mother nature. I know that I will have time till 2050 to teach you more about our forests, oceans, air, about camping, smelling our soil, being sustainable and adore eating healthy food. I hope we will enjoy together all those moments.

You are my blood, you are my soul, I love you and I promise you that we will spend more time together camping so you will be more in touch with nature.

With love, your father (HY)
