“I have come to terms with the future.
From this day onward I will walk
easy on the earth. Plant trees.
Kill no living thing.
Live in harmony with all creatures.
I will restore the earth where I am.
Use no more of its resources than I need.
And listen, listen to what it is telling me.”
M. J. Slim Hooey
