A Cree Native American storyteller and teacher relayed this message: "According to my tradition, from the beginning of creation, every morning when the sun comes up, we are each given four tasks by our Creator for that day.
First, learn at least one meaningful thing today.
Second, teach at least one meaningful thing to another person.
Third, do something for some other person, and it will be best if that person does not even realize that you have done something for them.
And Fourth, treat all living things with respect.
This spreads these things throughout the world."
