Dear Tomorrow,

If we are good stewards you will have a world to live in that is better than what we got from our ancestors. I have trouble breathing the air many days here in Seattle, Washington. Most people don’t notice the level of pollution we have, but my lungs do. I hope we’ve fixed that by your time. I hope you have a world with clean air to breathe, clean water to drink, and healthy food to eat every day. I hope that in addition to safe human cities you can live in, that the world also has a multitude of different wild places for all the other creatures to live their lives freely and naturally in. I hope the world makes you say “wow” and wonder at its endless complexity and beauty, because that’s how it can be. And I hope that you and your family are free to live in that state of joy and wonder your whole lives.
