At this time of reflecting on what it means to be a steward of the earth’s resources – I came upon this beautiful, visionary pledge, created back in 1966 , by the Women’s Environmental and Development organization:
“I pledge allegiance to the Earth
and to the flora (plants), fauna (animals) and human life
that it supports,
one planet, indivisible,
with safe air, water and soil, economic justice and equal rights and peace for all.”
