Happy stealing land from indigenous peoples day! Today I started with a Mandala and started thinking about the native peoples that once occupied the Americas. How slowly over time the culture has been pushed out and away. I had an excellent lesson on some of this history this weekend from a lovely woman named Michelle. My Mandala morphed in to this shout out to some of the peoples original to this land.
Remember: patriotism isn’t blind love for your country. It’s knowing the potential, setting a standard and striving toward it. I love what we can be if we learned to love and respect one another.
