Dear future Child or Grandchild,
Climate is undeniably changing but it is not top priority.
To my Maria and her children,
I have to tell you something: it is so hard to keep our life “green” for now, but we still keep trying.
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?
To My Future Children,
I hope by 2050, our society has taken initiative to be producing energy solely through renewable sources.
Dear Chay and Kate,
Don’t ever let anyone tell you your actions don’t matter. Every single thing you do matters. You matter.
