QotD: Save the Earth OR ELSE

 A day will come in your lifetime
when the Earth, your mother,
will beg you, with tears running,
to save her.
Ho, if you fail to help her,
you and all people will die like dogs.
Remember this.

~~Hollow Horn (Lakota), 1929,
as recounted in Black Hills, White Justice:
The Sioux Nation versus the United States,
1775 to the Present (1991)
