Sacred America / I'm grateful to have had the time this morning to listen to Jeremiah "Jay" Julius of the Lummi Nation

Jeremiah "Jay" Julius, 100% Native American:

"... Three thousand years ago we were one with the earth, we were one with nature, we drank from the rivers, we drank from the streams, we didn't worry about getting sick ..."

"... Who is going to speak for your unborn grandchildren? I commit to it ..."

Thanks to Elizabeth for this quote:

“I have been beaten, my skull fractured, and arrested more than forty times so that each and every person has the right to register and vote. Friends of mine gave their lives. Do your part. Get out there and vote like you’ve never voted before.”
—Congressman John Lewis

get out there and vote and yet the Rs are wiping hundreds of thousands off the roles. this country is in deep trouble. Trump is poised to declare the election invalid if we do manage to overcome republican voter suppression tactics.

I'm hopeful. Doing the right thing is why I'm hopeful.
