Wilderness provides comfort, serenity

Letter to the editor

Posted: Friday, March 25, 2005

My conscience and me resolved the issue of a highway north some time ago and we have long since set aside all the innumerable arguments "for" and "against" it. Together we determined that many continuous and controversial political debates would serve only to ruminate over what is really a deeply philosophical division of ethical and moral values. In reality, there are those who wish to have a roadway from Juneau to Skagway, to provide some kind of super highway to freedom. Or to satisfy a vested interest of one kind and another, or to redesign and develop the numerous wild lands in between. But in addition, there is an well-organized and totally dedicated balance of individuals who wish to leave this precious land in a pure and wild state. They believe, as I do, that there is wisdom, comfort, and serenity in knowing mile upon mile of wild coastal lands will remain this way for generation after generation.
