Spirit of Thunderheart

Save the earth for the children for they are our future.

Save the earth that feeds us all.

Save the animals, birds, fish, bees and insects for they are our environment.

Save our trees, they are our shade, fresh air and home to many earths’ inhabitants.

Save our sky, the air around us for it’s the air we and all of earth’s inhabitants breathe.   

Save our water, for water is life for us and all of earth’s inhabitants.

Most of all save and respect earth all that’s here on earth, without these; earth dies, we all die.


Don't let it be too late.  Stop Nuclear Power Now!
