Saturday Spotlight #15: Wise Words

I'd like to share one more picture taken during our drive home from Denver to Montana


This quote, inscribed on a granite panel of the Indian Memorial at the Battle of the Little Big Horn Monument, made a big impression on me.

Easier said than done, but I hope that humanity will try.

Have a happy and peaceful weekend.

This post may be linked to one of the great link-up parties I follow and list on my blog. Check them out!

    1. I think we all have to try, Kelly. The alternative is not a good option.

  4. Sadly, wise words are only understood by the wise. Sigh.

    1. SO, perhaps the key is education... of men, and of women.

  5. If only people would stop thinking that only their way is the right way. But we must have hope, right?

    1. I think you have made a very valid observation, Lana. Tolerance of each other's view points would solve so many problems. Each generation seems to be making some strides with this. Maybe there really is hope!

  6. I have a list of "Ten Commandments" as seen by the Native American that I try to live by. I am part Cherokee Indian and that part of my heritage has always meant a great deal to me. The Earth are all really have to leave to our children and the way we take care of it says a lot about us.

    1. The fact that a population of people whose land and livelihood we took away can still advocate for unity through peace speaks volumes. When I was in grade school Rena, I kept asking my parents if they were sure we were not part Native American. Somehow, it seemed that if I was, I wouldn't have to shoulder quite so much guilt for the history I was learning about.

    2. Sadly...history keeps repeating itself!
