We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children.
~ Native American Proverb

I hope humanity can come together and stop ravaging the earth. Sooner rather than later.

I don’t understand why we can’t—as a society—embrace the idea of living sustainably.

I live as mindfully as I can but I’m not perfect. I don’t have all the answers about how I can make a difference. I just do my best, one moment at a time.

I refuse to throw my hands up in defeat. Or to say it’s too late (as some claim) to do something about it.

I have a son and what would he think of me if I just gave up? His future—our children’s future—depends on us. Can’t we toss our differences in politics and religion aside and stand together? If not for us, for them?

I’m going to be a warrior of the rainbow. Today and tomorrow. Are you with me? I hope so.

  1. […] So, while you are enjoying some Tofurkey and pumpkin pie this Thanksgiving, share the real story of Thanksgiving with those around you. Awareness is the key to progress. It can be easy to overlook the contributions of the Native Americans in the earliest years of this country, but in remembering and being grateful for their contributions to the foundation of this country, we can use their stories as lessons in ahimsa and compassion. Because we truly have so much to learn. […]
