Common Ground

Effects of Humans on Ground and Surface Water

Circular 1139, USGS Image of Human Effects on Ground and Surface Waters

We walk the Earth’s land,

drink in its water,

breathe in its air,

make love under its moon

and bask in its sun . . .

We owe it our thanks,

every minute of every day

and thus must care for it as it cares for us

by keeping its air clean

its waters crisp and clear

and its land free of pollutants

For if we do not

our children

and grandchildren

will have no air to breathe

no land to till

no waters to drink

For we share one land

Planet Earth

It is the ground from which we are birthed

and to which we will all one day return

It is this common ground

That unites us

For without it

We are nothing

But a memory
