"The earth is the mother of all people, and all people should have equal rights upon it."
In Hawaiian culture, we really do refer to the earth as mother or Papa. As someone who is part of a culture whose Kingdom was overthrown and land taken away, this quote really speaks to me. This also makes me think of global warming and how we, as a whole, aren't doing a good job of taking care of the earth.
I hope this quote made you really think. What did this make you think of? Does this quote have great meaning to you?
