"At school, even in kindergarten, you teach us to behave in the world. You teach us
not tofight with others
to work things out,
to respect others,
to clean up our mess,
not to hurt other creatures
to share - not be greedy
Then why do you go out and do the things you tell us not to do?"


Severn Suzuki in 2006.
