Wilderness Dedication by Ned Fritz
Ned delivered the Wilderness Dedication at the 25th Anniversary Celebration of the Wilderness Act, September, 1989.
Oh Great Spirit of Earth and Sky,
Once again we, your children,
are returned unto you.
We are penitent about the devastation
we have committed upon Earth...
and the pollution
we have spread to the skies.
We pledge that we will make all
sacrifices necessary to clean up
our corruption will share
our bounty with all other living
creatures that do not threaten
As tokens of our sincerity,
we dedicate the finest
of our natural heritage
never to be abused or befouled,
always to be enjoyed and cherished.
