This Native American saying is not just a good reminder; it's a mantra to repeat daily in our efforts to live more "green."  A mantra for living gently on our planet, living in a way that honors where our families come from and where they are headed.  A mantra that, if lived well, will make our children proud.

We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children. -- Native American Proverb
