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.

Awareness is key. Learning about this issue can seem like a small effort compared to other actions, but it’s the most important.

 

My Mini & Lou,

Since I first sat down with these words, a pandemic has erupted. Racial violence is reaching a fever pitch and protests are raging across the nation. It feels like the planet is succumbing to entropy, slipping further into chaos. But I write to you from a time of shifting tides.

 

People of tomorrow,

Your path will only be as clear tomorrow as we have made it for you today.
