QUOTES from others who care about protecting the children of the world from harm in the new Digital Age.

“If we wake up each morning, living through our past, then we are already dead. But if we wake up each morning with amnesia, not remembering the harm we have done to others or the harm others have done to us, only then, if each one of us (no matter how powerful we may be (with our behavior) in the human condition; only then can we become a caretaker of the land and in the new Digital Age practice our personal behavior to “restore this earth to a garden in which ‘all children, no matter what the color of their skin, can flourish and make their dreams come true”

“Si nos despertamos cada mañana, viviendo nuestro pasado, entonces ya estamos muertos.
