Okay, now that we have your attention, we are hoping that you will read on.

We were born in the womb of Mother Earth, we were moulded by her, we were nurtured by her. Who are we if not mere extensions of nature?

Our veins flow like the veins of leaves, our wrinkles form like ripples in water, our bones extend like branches of trees.

We are not as separate as we’d like to think. We are children of the earth.

We are nature, nature is us.

This International Mother Earth Day, let us try to stop being jerks.
