The youth are the future. Six years ago, in the Summer of 2011, we began a journey. One that was awakened by tragedy and death in our small community of Taos, NM. Our hearts prayer, for the healing of the generations to come, for the healing of our children's children. That though we carried much grief over the loss of our young ones, that this could fertilize an even greater movement of life, for those still here. Through acknowledging the sorrows of the past - wars, colonization, violence, abuse, oppression, control, we could forgive and reconcile and unite together for today and build together for a brighter future. As we face those things that we do not want to continue for our future generations, drug and alcohol abuse, anger, bitterness, depression, violence, racism, scarcity mentality, we open the door to what we do want to pass on, love, music, dance, art, perseverance, giving, wisdom, spirituality, sharing and FREEDOM! May our prayers for a brighter future continue to flourish, may our UNITY continue to grow and spread the message of hope, love, and empowerment for the next Seven Generations to come, for all life, for the earth. May we be mindful of our impact on this planet, as every action we take in love, in forgiveness, reverberates throughout the universe, for all life matters.
