“What would it be like to be raised on gratitude, to speak to the natural world as a member of the democracy of species, to raise the pledge of interdependence? No declarations of political loyalty are required, just a response to a repeated question: ‘Can we agree to be grateful for all that is given?'”
This quote is from the book “Braiding Sweetgrass” by Robin Wall Kimmerer. The book is a beautiful, poetic meandering of expression of our lack of separateness from the natural world we are breathing each day.
