"We may think that we are living in harmony with nature sometimes, but nature can't live in harmony with us unless we stop destroying it.

We need more educational opportunities for teaching and learning about ecosystems, biodiversity, understanding the cycles of nature and the "values" of ecological wisdom, non-violence, and personal and planetary responsibility." ~ Patty Ann Smith

Out of the Dust of the Earth

"What modern science actually tells us is that we live in a remarkable and dynamic universe, in which the genuine miracle is its remarkable embrace of life and change. We find ourselves in the midst of a continuing creation, in which the physical properties of matter itself drive the formation of new stars and galaxies, and make possible the emergence and evolution of life in all its splendor.

Ultimately, evolutions analysis of life and its history reinforces, rather than undermines, the lessons of Scripture, which tell us that we were formed out of the dust of the earth. We were indeed." ~ Author Unknown

Be One of Earth's Guardians

Think about making a pledge to yourself like the following lines from Diane Ackerman's poem "Guardians":

"...I swear I will not dishonor my soul with hatred,
but offer myself humbly, as a guardian of nature,
as a healer of misery, as a mesenger of wonder,
as an architect of peace..."
