"Where is the heart that will keep me from being no more? Where is the hand that will protect the fields and forests, rivers and mountains that were given to me first? Where are the eyes that will look for me to make sure I can still be found? Where are the ears that will hear if I cease to make a sound? Where are the feet that will carry me to safety? I believe they are yours if you will only use them."
