Leonard Peltier

Quote of the day: Leonard Peltier...

"We must each be an army of one in the in the endless struggle between the goodness we are all capable of and the evil that threatens us all from without as well as from within. Yes, we can each be an army of one. One good man or one good woman can change the world, can push back the evil, and their work can be a beacon for millions, for BILLIONS. Are you that man or woman? If so, may the Great Spirit bless you. If not, WHY NOT? We must each of us be that person. That will transform the world overnight. That would be a miracle, yes, but a miracle within our power, our healing power.

To heal will require real effort and a change of heart, from all of us. To heal means that we will begin to look upon one another with respect and tolerance instead of prejudice, distrust, and hatred. We will have to teach our children--as well as ourselves--to love the diversity of humanity. To heal we will have to make a conscious effort to live as the Creator intended, as sisters and brothers, all of one human family, caretakers of this fragile, perishable, and sacred Earth. To heal we will have to come to the realization that we are ALL under a life sentence together...and there's no chance for parole.

We can do it. Yes, you and I and all of us together. Now is the time. Now is the only possible time. Let the Great Healing begin."
