“Our most basic common link
is that we all inhabit this small planet.
We all breathe the same air.
We all cherish our children’s future.
And we are all mortal.
Earth Thought for the Day
“You must teach your children
that the ground beneath their feet
is the ashes of your grandfathers.
So that they will respect the land,
tell your children that the earth is rich
with the lives of our kin.
Teach your children
what we have taught our children,
that the earth is our mother.
Whatever befalls the earth befalls
the sons of the earth.
If men spit upon the ground,
they spit upon themselves.”
