#212 / The Chief's Speech

The Great Change website tells us that the famous words below, attributed to Chief Seattle, were not, in fact, the words of Chief Seattle at all. 

It does matter, of course, who says something. But it is also true that words, themselves, can speak to us, and touch our souls, and convey important truths. 

Written for television? OK. These words speak to me:

This we know. The earth does not belong to man. Man belongs to the earth. This we know. All things are connected like the blood which unites one family. All things are connected. Whatever befalls the earth, befalls the sons of the earth. Man did not weave the web of life; he is merely a strand in it. Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself.
