Saturday Thought

      "Only after the last tree has been cut down,
    Only after the last river has been poisoned,
    Only after the last fish has been caught,
    Only then will you find that money cannot be eaten."
Cree Indian Prophecy

      ~~~~~~  Hey...  I'm Just Sayin' ... ~~~~~ 


  1. I haven't heard that saying before. It makes a lot of sense.

  2. It makes sense, but I find it hard to believe it would be attributed to the Cree nation [or any Native American group for that matter.]

    Forgive me but, it seems a little too "updated" to be something of a prophecy from the Cree.

    Unless, of course, you throw in the casinos that are run on reservations. There in lies the money of the quote.

  3. IanH, I hadn't heard it either but feel the same way. Many folks never think about just where things actually come from.

    Hi Skippy! I know it seems to be a "modern prophecy" (or whatever you want to call it) I figure that even if it is- it's a good thing to think about. We are killing our earth with no regard to what will happen when we deplete without repleting what has been given to us all to care for. (PS Your A's are looking good )
