Dear Tomorrow,

I grew up in Kalamazoo, Michigan. It was a great place to grow up because of its convenience to an abundance of natural wonders. The opportunity to catch big sport fish on lake Michigan, hike through acres of untouched land, and see an abundance of wildlife everywhere I’d look. I remember walking through the sand dunes and into the miles of protected forests. I have seen these things change within my lifetime, and thinking that the future generations won’t have this opportunity is horrible. Fishing on lakes have dramatically decreases, every time I am home I see a new section of forest completely destroyed and replaced with a mega-subdivision. On a larger scale, I look around this country and see people denying change that is happening before our eyes. The current stance on climate change as well as what we are doing to solve it are both very disappointing. I hope for the future that we are able to change the frame of thinking that has got us to this point. I hope we are able to make this change before it is too far gone. Amazing technology comes out every day, and it is exciting to think about the future tech that could revolutionize the world. Hopefully this technology will move toward a clean, productive, and more sustainable future. I hate to sound like the Lorax here (if you haven’t seen this movie see it immediately) but unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not. We are all responsible for this change, I just hope we all can realize it in time. And always remember, Save the bees, whales, oceans, rain forests, ozone, and all the things in between.

To my beloved granddaughters, Margaret and Caroline,

Growing up in Germany, I often wondered what my parents had done to oppose the Nazi regime in the 1930’s that led to WWII.  I was so disappointed when I found out how passive they had been. For me, this was formative.

 

To our future generations,

I want you to know that some of us do care and we are working towards a better future for you.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

Love, help and build a future in unison that benefits and protects the whole world.

 

Dear James,

More importantly, what are we doing to better our planet and everyone who lives in it?
