To indigenous people, Earth is a living being. Among the Lakota we call earth our grandmother, and you do not rape your grandmother. Because she is the mother of all livings, you are related to everything that lives-every blade of grass, every pine needle, every grain of sand. Even the rocks have life. Since you rely on all this life for your sustenance, you have to be respectful.
~Russell Means, Arapaho Activist.
Grandmother Earth, not merely consumers or conquerors, and to teach others to do the same. Grandmother Earth is our sustainer and inspiration. She not only provides a home and sustenance, but her measureless beauty opens a thousand windows to show us God. Her vast mountains remind us of the endless peaks of our own courage, the fathomless depths of her seas reflects our own enigmatic and unplumbed treasures, and the endless span of her ever-changing sky invites our spirits to soar on the wings of eagles. Next to life itself, Grandmother Earth is God's most precious gift, and it is our sacred responsibility to cherish her so that our beloved children will inherit her riches. Listen for her voice in the wind and from the depths of our heart. #trinitytruthbomb #tripletrinity
