We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors.
We borrow it from our children.
Our Children
Will you teach your children what we have taught our children? That the earth is our Mother? What befalls the earth befalls all the sons and daughters of the earth. This we know: The earth does not belong to us, We belongs to the earth. All things are connected like the blood that unties us all. We did not weave the web of life, We are merely a strand in it. What ever we do to the web, We do to ourselves. One thing we know: Our God is also your God. The earth is precious to him and to harm the earth is to heap contempt on it's Creator.

We love this earth as a newborn loves it mother's heartbeat. If we sell you our land, care for it as we have cared for it. Hold in your mind the memory of the land aas it is when you recieved it. Preserve the land and the air and the rivers for your children's children and love it as we have it.
