NATIVE AMERICAN PROVERB


I recently read an excellent article in the Huffington Post by Kathleen Rogers, President of Earth Day Network,  called “What the Environmental Movement Can Learn From the Wall Street Zombies”, (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/kathleen-rogers/what-the-environmental-mo_b_994964.html) that really struck a cord with me.  In it she says,  “We need to ask ourselves why, given our extraordinarily long list of scientific facts about the likelihood that we are destroying our planet, can we not engender the type of reactions and feelings that are certainly everywhere on Wall Street.”  Is it that the environmental movement is too vast, too confusing, too threatening to our way of life, too threatening to big business, too scary?  This Native American proverb simplifies the issue,

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

We must each do our part to protect it.
