Elder's Meditation of the Day December 17; directed at erin lee todd, director of the carleton place interval house.

"Hear me! A single twig breaks, but the bundle of twigs is strong."
--Tecumseh, SHAWNEE

... You can take one arrow and break it in half. But if you take 12 arrows in a bundle, it's almost impossible to break any of them. There is strength in Unity. When we are together we are very powerful. This is the way the ancestors told us we need to be. Strong. We need to unite ourselves. This is why the Elders say, when we make decisions, we must first consider the good of the people. If every person in the community thinks this way, then we will always make strong decisions.

Creator, let my decisions have the strength of the bundle

Why erin did you destroy my daughter's future? Why, after I begged you to help, did you send your friends from the opp at my house? Why, as a native woman, did you put another native girl on welfare? Is there not enough of our people dependent, that you had to add another?
There is no defense for what you did, you betrayed your own people for money.
What color is your heart? Did you consider the good of this little girl, or the good of your personal power?

Powerfull C, this woman should not be in this position, to do this to you and your daughter is a lack of compassion.

Those words from the elders and the words you spoke are words of wisdom and of conviction.

It seems wrong in a free nation where any person or any agency could do such a thing without a court order. In America it would be called Due Process of Law.

Native Canadian, someone once said, the pen is the most powerful weapon in the world. Keep publishing. Wildfires always start from a small spark or ember.
