Flying above this beautiful country, I look down at the earth. The great mother, still there, still mothering us all, despite our reckless obliviousness.

I pledge allegiance to her. It is to her that we owe our gratitude and our respect. Without the gifts of air and water, sunshine and soil, bird and bee, we would all be nothing. And I’m not speaking figuratively here.

No matter our politics, our race, our gender, how much or how little money we have – we are all utterly reliant on the earth. This is not a one-sided relationship. It demands reciprocity. If we do not take care of her, she will not be able to continue to take care of us.

I’m with Her, and always will be.
