AN EARTH DAY EXCERPT - A DOG'S EYE VIEW
Ziggy put his paws over his floppy black ears. He knew what was coming. He knew the Professor was ready to launch into one of his long tirades and he couldn't bear to hear it. It was just too painful for his sensitive ears. He had heard there were places on the earth that were messed up. Word had gotten around. His friends had told him. The birds, who traveled back and forth through the seasons, flying everywhere over water and land, had seen it. Bird told Rabbit. Rabbit had been frightened when he told the gentle deer. And Deer had told Ziggy. Something awful was happening in these places called cities.
The squirrels were gathering more nuts than they needed, afraid there wouldn't be any more trees. Their friends the frogs were disappearing and no one knew why. They needed the frogs! They're the ones who sing to the thunder being. Their song brings on the rain.
Everyone was talking about it. They told Ziggy the problem was his friends, the humans. They were taking up more space than the Great Universal Source had allotted them. Turtle said the humans should learn to slow down and look around. Snake said some of their poisons would wake them up soon enough. Spider said not to worry. The humans had created a web and gotten caught in it. But some of them would see their way out. They could see the light, the weaving of the whole universe. And after all, even flying insects knew to go to the light, didn't they?
Yes, my brother, all suffer when one suffers. But how do we have others recognize this fact. You and I know this, but again, how do we get our brothers to open their eyes to this suffering among our kinsmen? There is so much for our Elders to do. We have started the Great Migration, but even our young people have already excluded us elders. We are in a mire, and the pain of my kinsmen is very alarming. Each day, I sing to the world to help them find the bloom's bloom within. '

Are you telling us that all men share this fate, or are you saying that the Palestian's have suffered. All have suffered my beloved Jan, this is what we do when we use love, we suffer for those we love, until peace is known.
It is the sons of Israel, who must forgive their brothers and then embrace them and welcome them home. We are one Nation, the Rainbow Clan. The house of david is coming home, white buffalo calf woman and his holiness running eagle shooting star, have come home to all. When shall the Nations embrace us? When they can forgive all their brothers and take their place. your devoted servant, white buffalo calf woman "twindeermother" elder crystal person (iyeshka or interpreter)
