Rolling Thunder's Prayer for the Earth
Prayers to Heal The Earth
"This is the Earth, healed again, growing green and blue. I want you to remember this exactly as it is, and then go and tell the people that if enough of us hold this image in their minds, we can heal the Earth and make it like it was a long time ago."

He was a great inspiration in my life, and was able to clarify complex issues. He passed too early. The experiences I had with him and because of him would sound like X-Files or a Castaneda novel. What I most remember is him telling me that I would live to see the day when Native American traditional wisdom and worldview was respected once again. The fact that so many now take "Gaia Theory" for granted, and even the most jaded bureaucrat sees global warming as everybody's concern fulfills his forecast. Wado!"

made to make this earth a better place to live in. White man
has destroyed it with too much building, commercializion and
greed. I also am of Cherokee blood lines, very small, but
yet proud to admit. I take pride in the natural things of
the country. I hate to see it destroyed. This has to stop,
we need to step back in time and appreciate what we have had,
and not ruin it for our coming generations. I pray hard, with
many tears in my eyes and much pain in my heart. I work to
keep the land, rivers, lakes, forests, and streams clean.
I know the higher powers are ashamed of us for being so wasteful
and destructive. Bless the East, West, North and the South....all
corners of this universe. Make our earth beautiful and whole
