When explaining death to a child we show how plants sprout, grow, live and die creating soil for future generations of plants. The circle of life–it is so beautiful, so pure. But we do not tell the child that we kill, trash, consume, produce, and poison the Earth. With our own actions we’re creating disaster and pollution for our future generations.

Chop the roots
Crush the ties
Our limbs are in nature
We’re going to die
