Giving Thanks to the Earth

Native American teachers teach us to be grateful for all life.  They honor the animals and plants as our brothers and sisters.  They honor the earth as our mother and the sky as our father.  They teach us to show gratitude to all living creatures for the essential roles that they play in maintaining the web of life.

Being grateful teaches us the value and importance of being alive on this wonderful planet.  When we know deep in our hearts, that as a people, we are kept alive by nature's sacred gifts we will come to honor and respect life in a way which will always be mindful of our children's, children's future.

At Children of the Earth United we strongly believe in the importance and positive benefits of expressing gratitude.

With this thought in mind, we invite  our youth, their teachers and the members of their families to  join us in our Thank You Mother Earth - Gratitude Campaign. Click here for details.
