A quote for Earth Day, from Mandawuy Yunupingu


“We need to live in harmony with Mother Earth, a harmony that is based on co-existence and respect. She owns us . . . we don’t own her. It is through respect for the land and taking care not to abuse the land that we are able to survive.”–Mandawuy Yunupingu, Aboriginal Australian musician and educator

  1. Mother Earth has been in existence for 4.5 billion years now and we have another 5 billion until the Sun swells and burns the planet into non-existence. Hence, there is significant time remaining for preserving God’s wonderful creation. Should the present trend toward future human colonization of Mars and Saturn’s moon Titan continue, us humans will expand into other natural resources which will mandate preservation.
