Celebrate Earthday with the World Pledge
I Pledge Allegiance to the World
To Care for Earth and Sea and Air
To Cherish Every Living Thing
With Peace and Justice Everywhere!
As Pledge author Lillian Genser has noted, the World Pledge is not meant as a substitute for the US Pledge of Allegiance, but rather as a supplement to provide children with an impetus to gain better understanding about the planet on which they live, the people who inhabit it, and the ecosystem of which they are a part. The widely adopted Pledge was developed at the Center for Peace and Conflict Studies at Wayne State University. Posters and study guide are available – see http://snipurl.com/wpledge
