Today’s Quote:

“I think what we have to do is look at each other, and learn from each other. Not just think that we know it all, because every one of us knows a bit. And if we put all that together, then we educate each other about everything. “

— Aboriginal Elder, Major “Muggi” Sumner, from a Global Oneness Project interview
