Two Bears Growling
You are here for a reason sister. You are here to give a voice to the things so many people who feel hopeless & know no other way out of the pain to speak about. Hopelessness among our native communities is staggering. Until our native communities can drive out the drugs, drinking, the violence & abuse, not one thing is going to change. Our elders, councils, wise ones, healers, parents must stand up, legally take hold of those who are poisoning our people with drugs & alcohol & make an example of these evil ones. If not, this cycle of death will grow even bigger. I find too many times folks will not say anything because of who some is or a family is who is involved. This is not right. No one is above the words of our Creator regarding how we should live our lives. A life that makes the Great Spirit pleased. Without balance in our lives, our communities & our families, chaos is what results. Parents, your children are your priority; not parties, drugs & alcohol. The Creator has blessed you with the most precious gift of all in your life when He grants you a child. In everything you do, where you go & the words that come out of your mouth, let it show you are thankful for the Great Spirit's blessings in your life. Remember, the Great Spirit sees everything you do or think & hears every word that comes out of your mouth. Are you bringing shame to yourself, your family, your tribe & your family, or, are you bringing pride, respect, honor? Each life is like a pond & the things we do or say are like a stone cast into the water. The ripples that result in just one pebble thrown in affect every part of that pond.
