390 – “I don’t know how to save the world. I don’t have the answers or the Answer. I hold not secret knowledge as to how to fix the mistakes of generations past and present. I only know that without compassion and respect for all of Earth’s inhabitants, none of us will survive – nor will we deserve to. The future, our mutual future, the future of all the peoples of humanity, must be founded on respect… We are in this together – the rich, the poor, the red, the white, the black, the brown, and the yellow. We are all one family of humankind. We share responsibility for our Mother Earth and for all those who live and breathe upon her… I believe in the good in humankind. I believe that the good can prevail, but only with great effort. And that effort is ours, each of ours, yours and mine.”

–Leonard Peltier
