Queridos nietas/nietos,

Les escribo esta primera carta para responder a tan importante pregunta ¿Sabías del calentamineto global y qué hiciste para evitarlo?

He sabido de este fenómeno desde hace muchos años, pero su papá (tío) Sebastián, me ha hecho mucho más conciente de la gravedad y, tal vez, inevitabilidad del fenómeno.

No he decidido aún cómo puedo colaborar para evitar o minimizar el daño de este fenómeno, más allá de mi comportamiento individual, tratando de minimizar siempre mi huella de daño ambiental. Sin embargo, creo que debo hacer más. Por ello, he decidido escribir esta breve carta para empezar un proceso en el que vaya escribiendo más cartas, conforme vaya teniendo más claridad de mis posibles contribuciones.

Los quiero enormemente y, por ello, quiero contribuir al cuidado del medio ambiente, para que ustedes también puedan disfrutar de este maravilloso planeta, como lo he hecho yo. Pronto volveré a escribirles, ya con ideas más claras.

Su abuelo Jaijo.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Sadie,

You are young and have a rich future ahead of you. I am retired and aiming for a high quality of cultural life and comfort with whatever time remains to me. I do not want to see a world whose elders sacrifice your future for their short-term needs and personal gain. So it’s up to you and me to speak out.

 

Dear Future Today,

Here in California we’re starting to recognize our climate changing the natural world around us.

 

Dear Kids,

I know it’s long past time to wake up. You deserve a future in which drought, famine, and war are not all your children ever know; the choices my generation makes now will determine your future.

 

To older Rochelle,

You should’ve reduced your carbon footprint, should be using some source of renewable energy and be a vegetarian by now.

 

Dear Grandchildren — August and any others who were born after him

I joined millions of other people who wrote letters and made calls urging our leaders to do more to care for the planet.

 

Dear Earth,

I will keep the air clean so everyone can see the sunset.

 

Dear Tomorrow

I will teach my children about a greener earth.

 

Dearest Gray,

When I asked you why the purple Violet called to you, you told me it was “magic”. I hope that you can still find the magic of life. I hope, despite everything, it is still in abundance.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to ditch all the natural gas and go all electric with my home!

 

To the future generations,

I hope that you all can enjoy the Smokey Mountains in your lifetime too and that they look how they did back in 2017 when I saw them.

 

Dear Jamie and Jason,

My inspiration was the two of you. It started with thinking about the world you were inheriting and what your future was going to be like. But then you taught me how important it is to listen to you – to listen to young people.

 

Dear Tara,

I am sitting in a classroom thinking about you. Which is rare for me. I hope that our family has taken some initiative to do something about changing society instead of building robots and large houses.
