“The eyes of the future are looking back at us and they are praying for us to see beyond our own time. They are kneeling with clasped hands that we might act with restraint, leaving room for the life that is destined to come.
We have it within our power to create merciful acts.”
— naturalist and author Terry Tempest Williams
