Mountains . . . their duty lies long — millions of years.  Nay, tens of millions of years.  They stand, watch and keep guard over the earth.  Civilizations have come and gone.  Nations rise and fall and still they watch.  If only they could speak.  What lessons would they teach?  What would they say to man?

I hear them whisper, “Slow down.  Don’t move so fast.  There may not be a tomorrow.  Give your child a hug, make your life have meaning for in the blink of my eye, it will be gone.”  And when you and I are gone, my friend, they will stand, watch and keep guard over the earth.
