Dear Sport and Skeezix (my grandchildren Owen & Sam),

I write this today because I am so concerned about the state of the natural world that you will inherit. Grandpa and I, as well as your dad and your Opa, were blessed to live in a beautiful world and enjoy the wonders of mountains, clean rivers, and other beauties. But change has been occurring. We’ve noticed it in the little things: armadillos have moved up to Missouri as southern states have gotten hotter. Birds that used to leave Missouri in the winter for warmer climates are now staying. And, of course, we’ve seen the big changes….the diminished ice caps, the destroyed coral reefs, the erosion of beaches. As a consequence, we are trying to step up and work for the environment by battling the politicians who put contributions and business needs above the health of the earth. Grandpa and I aren’t “outdoorsy” … but we love this world and we must speak up to protect it for you and your generation…as well as your children. We hope when you read this message, we have been successful and you live on a beautiful and healthy planet.
