There is a story of two women who claimed to be the mother of a baby. A judge who heard their case decided that the object should be divided equally between them. One mother agreed and the other wept, saying that she would have the other woman take the child rather than to have him cut up. The shrewd judge then knew to whom the baby belonged.

Mother Earth weeps.
