SPECIAL NOTE - ANANDA'S POEM

Let America Be Green America Again by Ananda Kiamsha Madelyn Leeke

Copyright 2009 by Madelyn C. Leeke.


Let America be Green America again.
Turtle Island.
Home.
A place where we can touch the earth.
Breathe fresh air.
Drink clean water.
Build and maintain community gardens.
Eat healthy food.
Honor our indigenous ancestors.
Bow our heads to our hearts without shame from misusing natural resources and disrespecting human beings and living things.

Let America be Green America again.
Turtle Island
Home.
A place where everyone has value.
A place where we understand, appreciate, and celebrate human differences.
A place where we resolve conflict, forgive, have compassion, and live in peace.

Let America be Green America again.
Turtle Island.
Home.
A place where people have access to 21st century education, training opportunities, affordable and comprehensive healthcare, social services, safe housing, stable employment, energy-efficient transportation, and sustainable homes in communities that support their well-being.
A place that offers opportunities to serve each other with our gifts.
A place we can all work together to make our country better.

Let America be Green America again.
Turtle Island.
Home.
A place that offers room to dream and grow.
A place that promotes the expression of creativity.
A place of innovation and endless possibility.

Let America be Green America again.
Turtle Island.
Home.
A place where people can plant seeds of healing and love, and nurture them until they are ready for harvest.
A place fertile enough to give birth to the Age of Aquarius.
A place we can finally embrace and call our own.
