I wrote this song in 1973, when the environmental movement was in its infancy. It was inspired by the "Native American Crying" Public Service Announcement to combat littering, produced by The Ad Council for television in 1971. I had no idea at the time that I was expressing the "environmental grief" that is now being considered by some as a necessary process for enabling us to engage in environmental advocacy and action. To my knowledge, there was no market for an environmental song in 1973; and I'm not sure if there's much of a market in 2015. I offer it now, in hopes that this song can somehow get into social media and, perhaps, help citizens of the world to come to the hard decisions and actions that will be necessary for our planet home to survive and prosper.
