In Honor of Earth Day...(For Me, this says it all!)
The Global Pledge of Allegiance by Edna Reitz
(A Framed copy of this has hung proudly for over 20 years on the wall of my home...)
I Pledge Allegiance to the Earth And to the Universal Spirit Which gives us Life; One Planet, Indivisible With Peace and Justice for Us All.
I Pledge to do my Best To unhold the Trust bestowed In the Gift of my Life; To care for Our Planet And our Atmosphere, To Respect and Honor All her Inhabitants, All People, Animals, Plants and Resources, To Create a Legacy For Our Children And Our Children's Children In a World of Harmony and Love.
I Pledge Allegiance To the Universal Spirit, By whatever Name it may be called. I align my Life With the ongoing Process of Creation; To grow Myself with Care, To Act from My Own Integrity, To Be for Others How I would want them To Be for Me.
Together May We carry this Vision Into our Hearts, Into our Daily Choices, And through Our Expanding Consciousness Within and Beyond Our Planet.
