Okinawan Prayer: "Do not destroy the sea"

When the Okinawa War was ended in 1945, 
mountains as well as villages were burned and pigs cows and horses were burned. Everything on the landwas completely burned out. Anything which we could eat was a blessed gift from the sea. Repay Mother Nature for her favor. Do not destroy the sea.

By Uminchu (fisherman in Okinawan language) Yoshikatsu Yamashiro,
