The Responsible Traveler

 

The responsible traveler is a nomad,

Ambassador to the world

Carrying a stranger’s respect and intuition

Guided only by what he sees.

 

The responsible traveler is safe 

Trusting the knowledge and care 

Of his common human community

Serving the roadside all along the way.

 

Travelers are responsible

For peace in the world, 

They are marching prophets, humanity’s messengers

Carrying nomad hearts and eyes on feet.
