The Suzuki Foundation says:
The declaration is a heartfelt prayer to preserve the Earth, and a commitment to act on the understanding that we are completely dependent on and interconnected with nature.I wish the Foundation didn't describe this as a prayer; to me this Declaration is a simple and powerful resolution. It reads:
Nothing would make David happier than knowing how many people support him, and agree that we need to take care of our environment.
David and friends wrote the Declaration for the 1992 United Nations Earth Summit. But the words are as compelling and important as ever.
For David's birthday, pledge to live by these values. We should all be stewards of the Earth.
We can't steal from the future to serve the present.
We need to sustain and steward the Earth for our descendants.
