“Look around you my daughters and sons, at the insects, animals, plants and trees of the forests and fields; at the fishes and waters; at the birds and the air, and know that they do not need you to survive, rather it is you who need them!
Therefore, treat all beings, all things which I have made for my purpose, gently with love and compassion; respect them as if they were yourself. Only then can you be free, for truly, you are all my children!”
– Billy Micus
