One thing we each have in common is the right to the freedom to live happy and healthy.
We each have the right to say,
“This is my life!”
One thing we all share is this spectacular planet we live on.
We all have the right to say,
“This is my home!”
Although we don’t actually own the Earth, we can proudly proclaim,
“This is my planet!”
To show our respect for this immense privilege, we must remember
we are a part of it, not apart from it.
This celestial body makes our human bodies possible.
In a truly magnificent way, we are all bound to each other and our planet at the same time.
We are a part of the Earth, and the Earth is a part of us.
All of her creatures and systems work together to nurture and provide for us without bias.
We need to follow mother nature’s example and work together to care for her without bias.
If we take care of our planet, our planet will take care of us.
Let us join together and say,
“One people! One planet! One love!”
Taking care of the Earth
starts right in your own backyard.
The GlobaLogical programs expand our awareness and understanding of our connection to our environment and wildlife.
I promise to respect the Earth,
keep the grasses green,
keep the air pollution free,
and keep the water clean.
I promise to respect all creatures, everyone I see, care for them
and treat them how
I want them to treat me.
