daily asterisk

As we eat and drink and breathe we visibly demonstrate, even if we do not always honor, our attachments to and dependence on the land. If we take care of the land and preserve the integrity of the soil base and watershed, we will at the same time insure the life contexts that are indispensable for cultural flourishing. If nothing else, we will at least demonstrate that we believe the future of our grandchildren is worth protecting.
