Words of Wisdom

I was speaking with an Athabascan elder this morning; she said that people keep telling her to write a book, I must say that I quite agree.  She was speaking of the challenges facing so many native villages wiht keeping culture alive, and staying a healthy community with there being rampant substance abuse in so many places...

I just wanted to share something that she said that I thought was so poignantly put, and that is so true for everyone.

"There's one thing.  There's just one thing we're here for.  To love eachother and to get back to the one who made us.  Anything else, culture-wise, is just of this world."
