In these ecologically critical times, may we elevate our societal awareness and realize at long last: that Nature is our nature; that Nature knows best and will have its Way; that we are not dependent upon exploitation of our planet or its lifeforms but interdependent with all life thereon; that we can no longer unsustainably exploit Nature and others without dire consequences; that we must honor – not desecrate – Nature.

And so may it be!
