dear us,

We need to change. We have to recognize that our actions have consequences. It took a global pandemic for the Earth to heal, and it still is healing. We don’t care about people and we don’t care about the ground we stand on. Earth is living. It is sick. People rather focus on the economy than keeping people healthy and safe. I hope we remember the corporations that stood by their employees, and the corporations that looked at their employees as nothing greater than beings, who didn’t see the mom trying to provide for her two kids and the dad who just lost his wife and the kid who is the single provider for their family. I get it, life happens. But where is our humanity. Where is our love for each other. Where is our love for the world. We need to find ourselves and recognize what we’ve done to each other and what we’ve done to our earth. For the very being that gives us food and a place to live, we should take the best care of it. This Earth will not be here forever. You never realize the value of what you have, until it is gone. Love each other, and love our Earth.

To my daughter and her children,

As a minister, I have preached that we are here to be of service to others and to be care takers of this wonderful planet that God has given us.

 

Dear Tanuj,

The time has come to question ourselves as citizens about our own actions and the legacy we are leaving behind.

 

To my future children,

I am doing everything I can because I want the footprint that I leave behind to be my feet in the sand on a beach and not a carbon one.

The fact that you are reading this means that you would know the answer to a question that has kept me up at night more often than I would like to admit: Did I make you proud?

 

Dear Ezmae,

As I write this, I consider giving up as it sometimes seems that all is lost. But then I think of you.

 

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.

 

Dear fantastic,

We as the human race are smarter than this struggle at hand and need to rise above large corporate interests and confusion on this topic.

 

To my daughter and son,

Surrounded by scientists who shared my fears and visions, I often had a hard time to accept that outside our small community climate change received marginal attention.

 

Dear Oliver,

I am getting your father on board too so that we can double charge this together.

 

Dear Lucy,

The clock ticks, time passes, and the earth and all of its inhabitants move closer to dangerous boundaries we can dimly discern but cannot see clearly.

 

To the future generations,

I hope that you all can enjoy the Smokey Mountains in your lifetime too and that they look how they did back in 2017 when I saw them.
