Everybody needs beauty as well as bread,
places to play in
and pray in,
where nature may heal and give strength
to body and soul.
-- John Muir
We are all thankful to our Mother, the Earth, for she gives us all that we need for life. She supports our feet as we walk about upon her. It gives us joy that she continues to care for us as she has from the beginning of time.
To our Mother, we send greetings and thanks.
Now our minds are one.
-- Haudenosaunee Indian Thanksgiving Prayer
