We need to promote development that does not destroy our environment.  Wangari Maathai

We will be known forever by the tracks we leave.  Native American Proverb

We are now a planet that has been made intimate by our environmental concerns and water, food, and fuel shortages. It’s an altogether different proximity than we have ever experienced before: weapons of mass destruction pointed in all directions, climate changes messing with our planet, financial markets tied together, and technology keeping a virtual eye on everything. Whether you like it or not, we are an interwoven global family being pulled more tightly together. What you do impacts the whole. It’s not very probable that this one human family is reverting back to our days of isolation from one another.

Treat the earth well. It was not given to you by your parents, it was loaned to you by your children. We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors, we borrow it from our Children. Ancient Native American Proverb

Spiritual Contemplation: What is your contribution to taking care of our planet?

Affirmation: My contribution makes an positive environmental impact because of our connectedness.
