Silence, they say, is the voice of complicity.
But silence is impossible.
Silence screams.
Silence is a message,
just as doing nothing is an act.
Let who you are ring out & resonate
in every word & every deed.
Yes, become who you are.
There's no sidestepping your own being
or your own responsibility.
What you do is who you are.
You are your own comeuppance.
You become your own message.
You are the message.

In the spirit of Crazy Horse,
Leonard Peltier

from My Life is my Sundance

Thank you so much !!!!!

to Henry Lee Hunt with Love

Henry

you loved the ocean, my Friend, do you remember ???
when you were free you loved to go there to fish …. and enjoy life.

now you are free again and i want to give you today this ocean between us full of fishes and the most wonderful stars,
because today is a good day to live, not to die.
and Henry, you live in my heart forever.
you are a warrior and warriors don’t disappear like that.


in your last letter, you said
"Continue to fight never give up."
i’m trying, Henry, even in the darkest days i’m trying hard.

all these years you are here right in front giving me strenght.
i look into your eyes and i can hear a whisper,
don't stop, let's go .... let's freedom ring ....

this is my modest tribute to you.
i don’t speak Lumbee so, in my Indian way i say
Cante etanhan owoglake (speaking from the heart),
Until we meet again !!!!

With my Love, Always !!!!

Nature′s first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold,
Her early leaf′s a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.

they can always act so that their own lives have one.

I'm nothing.
I'll always be nothing.
I can't want to be something.
But I have in me all the dreams of the world.
