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.

Dear Llewyn, beloved grandson …

I can only say that I devoted myself to doing as much as I could to make it better, to provide for a just transition, and to fight those forces that continued to exploit the Eaarth with extractive methods, methods that always also included oppressing some people–because those doing the oppression believed that they were better and deserved more.
