To my future children,

Dear child,

I hope nothing but the best for in all of your future endeavors. I would like the to take the time to apologize to you for how bad our climate has become. The issue was just beginning when I was young and unfortunately my generation didn’t do enough to change the what everyone predicted, a much warmer earth. In my defense, I did everything in my power to try to prevent this warmer earth; I used LED lightbulbs, reduced my electricity usage, and recycled as much as possible. Among other things, our earth has become very warm and I am sorry you have to deal with these conditions we now live in. As your father, I promise to continue to reduce my carbon footprint as long as I’m around, so your children can have a more enjoyable earth to inhabit. Please take care of yourself, and be conscious of your daily carbon footprint. There is much information of the internet to help you out with this.

with love,

your father

Dear Alba:

There is still a lot of beauty and I will do what I can to keep it from slipping away.

 

Dear child,

The journey of humanity does not take us to Mars like the world now likes to believe. It takes us home to our true self where there is no separate self. Where we are all one. You know all this. Look after yourself my child, look after your brother, your friends, your children, all the animals and the whole planet. Love them like there is no tomorrow.

 

For my most dear and only daughter,

And I know life more fully because of you whom I live on through. 

 

To my grandchildren,

Ahora vivo en la ciudad de México y cuando debe de llover no llueve… cuando hace calor de verdad hace calor.

I want you to continue to enjoy bright, beautiful, blue skies, gigantic shady trees, chirping birds, scampering squirrels, sparkling creeks and all that this amazing world has to offer!

 

Para minha querida filha, Vitória,

Consegue compreender que estamos aqui de passagem e que temos por obrigação apenas tomar emprestado, evitado excessos e principalmente agradecer.

 

Dear children,

Despite all the difficulties, we are from a family whose principles are honesty and love for others, and that’s what I want to share with you.

 

Dear Ryan,

I hope that you start doing things that will help the world.

 

Dear Future,

“I knew you would want to know how the future turned out. You got so anxious about climate change as we grew older.  By coming back, I thought I could help you with that.”

 

Dear Victoria, sugar pie honey bunch, chiquita loquita,

How can I look at your bright eyes and light dance and tell you we are facing a war?

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