Earth by David Roth

The cofounders of Universal Stewardheirship, Inc. and the National CED Benefit Corporation have a shared vision that our mission includes reaching, serving and blessing millions of underserved people and helping create and save jobs. Our strategy for accomplishing that is to provide expanded access to some of the world's best development training programs, partly through a network of Community Economic Development Empowerment Resource Centers™ as described at

A beautiful outline of our ultimate vision is presented in the song Earth by David Roth that we frequently show a video of to set the tone for our live events.

EARTH A Song by David Roth

Dream of a day when we can live without anger.
Dream of a time when we can live without pain.
Dream of a way that we can live without hunger.
Dream of a sign that the earth can be peaceful again.

What can we do to get our people looking higher?
What do you do in the darkness but look for the light?
We can join hands and do whatever we desire.
We'll never fail as long as the reasons are right.

We're gonna' live in peace,
Its our only chance on earth.
Get all that fighting to cease,
And remember what life is worth.

Each of us has the power to bring about changes,
Though society separates us from the time of our birth.
We won't live here much longer if we live as strangers,
No time at all if we don't learn how to live with the earth.

Combining our efforts instead of being parted,
Sharing a vision that we will have a new dawn.
Remember that love is how it all got started and
Don't you know that love will keep going after we're gone.

What can we give the earth
That we haven't given in the past?

A way to live here on earth,
Make it last and last and last.

Dream of a day when we can live in communion.
Dream of a time when we can live without fear.
Awaken a way to get all of us working together.

And know that the time when the earth can be peaceful is near.
And know that our thoughts and actions are honest and clear.
And know that the people on earth can be safe from all fear.
Know that the time when the earth can be peaceful is near.
