This land is the mother of us all and like the air we breath is a gift of God for all inhabitants.
It should not be bought or sold, or be bartered with.
Placing boundaries and stakes upon Mother Earth is exploiting it.
All mankind are children of God, free to enjoy the land through love and harmony with all creation.
