we are stewards

Public lands and lakes, parks, charities, community groups, churches, oceans, community trust and air are . . . . . . .

. . . . .not yours . . . . . . . .

. . . . . they are gift to be shared with everyone and left for future generations just as they were a gift to you.

Knowing that they will bring joy, meaning, peace, happiness and comfort . . . . . . . 

. . . . . . is your payment for leaving them as good as or better than you found them.

Helping others escape, survive, grow from, cope with and learn from with hardships are not your punishment for caring . . . . . .

. . . . . . it is your history lesson to empower you with what must be done differently so others do not suffer that same fate. 

The homeless, poor, lost, refugees and the abused are not your burden . . . . . . . .

. . . . . . . their diversity and adaptability are part of the strong, stable community you are building for the future just as your world and community was left for you.

We are stewards.

This is our role as humans. We have the capacity.

This is not a religious perspective or a political one, it is human.

If we do not put effort into self-less acts that ensure stewardship of the earth and the human community we are not fulfilling our destiny as humans.

If we search inside our inner being we know that selfish acts lead to conflict, war and destruction. The denial of this is the acceptance that the human race is destined to extinction faster and hope will be lost.

The children of the future have a right to embrace the beauty of our planet, you do not have the right to take it away.
