Hola mi querido hijo Felipe;

Hoy estoy acá sosteniéndote en mis brazos casi dormido mientras a escribo esto, eres mi bebe solo tienes 7 meses que cumpliste el día de ayer, tienes los ojos más hermosos del mundo pues reflejan tu alma pura, cuando veo tu carita solo quiero que realmente seas feliz toda tu vida.

Ahora cuando pienso en las cosas que pueden pasar en el futuro cercano debido al daño que le hemos hecho a nuestro planeta me aterra pensar que las cosas no funcionen bien para ti en unos años (ni para nadie), que nuestra inconsciencia actual nos lleve a un estado de devastación y destruyamos todo lo hermoso de este planeta.

El mundo que Dios nos ha dado es perfecto, los ríos y mares, los bosques, el cielo azul y el aire limpio . Son cosas que nos dieron como una gran bendición pero que por alguna razón que no entiendo no valoramos lo suficiente, en cambio si valoramos el dinero, el concreto, los carros, el poder. Y todo esto nos está llevando al desastre.

Realmente no sé si logremos cambiar el curso del planeta que al parecer nos lleva a ciudades desaparecidas bajo el mar, sequías extremas, la extinción de los animales, hambre, y por supuesto guerras especialmente por el recurso más precisado que tenemos “el agua”.

Solo quiero que sepas que algunos como yo somos conscientes de lo que está pasando y quisiéramos poder hacer cosas para cambiar todo esto sin embargo aveces nuestros pequeños esfuerzos parecen no servir frente al problema tan grande y las decisiones de los dirigentes del país y del mundo que son inmediatistas y siempre basadas en la rentabilidad actual sin valorar los recursos naturales que estamos perdiendo, sin darnos cuenta que esto es lo que realmente importa. Desde que Trump es presidente de los Estados Unidos las cosas parecen mucho peor ya que está persona ha decidido obviar los hechos científicos y seguir promoviendo la extracción del petróleo y carbón en el mundo y  ni hacer nada por evitar el calentamiento global, pero claramente no podremos culparlo solo a él, somos todos responsables de lo que está pasando y de lo que pasará.

Espero hijo que tú nos puedas perdonar por lo que hemos hecho o peor aún por no haber hecho nada 🙁

 

Today, I am here holding you in my arms almost asleep while I write this.  You are my baby, you turned 7 months yesterday. You have the most beautiful eyes in the world, because they reflect your pure soul. When I see your face I just want you to really be happy all your life.  

Now, when I think about the things that can happen in the near future due to the damage we have done to our planet, I am terrified to think that things will not work well for you in a few years (or for anyone), that our current unconsciousness will lead us to a state of devastation and destroy everything beautiful on this planet.

The world that God has given us is perfect, the rivers and seas, the forests, the blue sky and the clean air. They are things that they gave us as a great blessing, but for some reason that I do not understand we do not value enough. Instead, we value money, concrete, cars, power. And all this is leading us to disaster.

I really do not know if we can change the course of the planet that apparently leads us to cities disappearing under the sea, extreme droughts, the extinction of animals, hunger, and, of course, wars, especially for the most precious resource that we have: “water”.

I just want you to know that some people like me are aware of what is happening and we would like to be able to do things to change all of this. However, sometimes our small efforts seem useless in the face of the big problem and the decisions made by the leaders of the country and the world. Decisions are immediate and always based on current profitability without valuing the natural resources that we are losing, without realizing that this is what really matters. Since Trump is president of the United States things seem much worse since he has decided to ignore the scientific facts, continues promoting the extraction of oil and coal in the world, and does nothing to prevent global warming. But clearly we can not blame him alone. We are all responsible for what is happening and what will happen.

I hope son you can forgive us for what we have done or even worse for not doing anything 🙁
