    • Jane Fritz says:

      We have much to learn from the spiritual tenets of most indigenous populations around the world, who understand that we – humans – are a part of nature and the planet, and that we have to respect the animals, plants, etc. The prevailing sentiment that nature is ours to use and abuse is coming back to haunt us, which should be no surprise. So very, very sad and unnecessary. It’s all about money.
