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.

Surrounded by scientists who shared my fears and visions, I often had a hard time to accept that outside our small community climate change received marginal attention.

 

Queridas filhas Ana Luísa e Ana Carla,

Que vocês possam contar para seus filhos e netos que minha geração tomou consciência de sua responsabilidade e assumiu sua condição de natureza e a ela se reintegrou, com inteligência, interação respeitosa e solidariedade.

 

Dear future family and friends,

This is our house.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to shop at more farmer’s markets.

 

Dear friends,

Rather than exploit it, destroy it, poison it, why don’t we just enhance the beauty of it, guard it, and love it?

 

Dear Tomorrow,

Be the person who shows up. Be the person who continues to advocate for change because change is possible – it is possible in the most partisan of politics.

 

Dear Daughter,

Even when contemplating huge global-historical issues — especially then — it’s important to stay grounded in the present time and place, the specific here and now, and the minute affairs of everyday interpersonal relations.
