Thank you Mother.
Plain and simple, if not for you, we could not breathe. We could not eat, and, we could not receive quench for our thirst. It all comes because you’ve been so resilient, and so forgiving. You’ve taken care of our needs for millions of years, never asking for anything in return.
When we needed warmth, you gave us wood to burn, then coal, then other fuels, as we’ve exploited each and all, never blinking an eye at the damage and hurt we’ve caused you. If we needed clothes, you’ve let the providers of wool, cotton, silk, flax, hemp — and even man-made fibers — till your grasslands, destroy your forests for grazing and agriculture, and poison your fertile soils so we could produce ever more, whether we needed more or not…
