What gift will we leave the following generations? In this season folks are wondering "what gift to give?" On the Berkshire Eagle editorial page Dec. 9, the side by side articles "The true message of COP 19" by L.R. Stevens and "Learn from Reagan climate effort" by L. Thomas, provide ideas for serious thought about " what gift" we will leave.

Stevens points out that the just concluded Warsaw climate Conference of the Parties (COP19) left camps divided. Thomas points out, "It's time for us to regain a sense of reason, take action based on facts, and build a monumental achievement on climate change - an accomplishment that will protect and benefit us all."

Thank you Stevens and Thomas for reminding us that we do have a gift to leave behind. If we each do what we can and support solutions, our gifts can make a difference!
