Greetings my relatives and friends

I wish I was there to talk with you in person and share with you the sorrow that I feel with the passing of Russell Means, my brother, my friend, and inspiration on many levels. Russell Means will always be an icon whenever the American Indian Movement is spoken of and whenever people talk about the changes that took place, the changes that are taking place now for Indian people.

One thing about Russell I always remembered, and I think someone else once said it, you may have loved him, or you may have disliked him, but you couldn’t ignore him. I’ll always remember when an elder said one time, I was at a ceremony and I asked what this half shaped moon circle on the ground meant, and he said it was a symbol of the circle of life, the never ending of the circle of life, and I said there is only half a circle, and he said the other half was unseen, it is the spirit world. For Indian people it never ends, we don’t have a linear existence, so I know I will see Russell again, and I take comfort in that thought. For men like Russell Means don’t come along in a lifetime very often. He was truly an inspiration for all of us younger guys at the time. He had good words to say, he was eloquent when he spoke them, and he spoke English as clearly and precisely and as articulate as any one I have ever heard speak. And he knew what he was talking about. And I know all of you out there, as well as myself, will always remember our friend, our brother and fellow activist, and how he stood with us to recapture the freedoms we’ve lost, and protect the ones that we still have, and bring about a better future for our people, and all people of this Mother Earth, who’s nature is in peril.

I really don’t know what else to say about our brother Russell, other than to Russell himself, “We’ll see you again my brother Russell, in some other time and in some other place, we will always be your friend, and we will always look forward to seeing your face. Mitakuye Oyasin ”

 

In the spirit of Crazy Horse, and Russell Means.

I’ll close for now.

Dear Friends,
i have missed you all so much. this time away for health reasons has shown me how precious life is and i hope i never take another moment for granted.

i hope that you have been happy, healthy and enjoying life.

for my friends who have been struggling with health problems, or any kind of problems i especially want you to know that i have been praying for Light and Love to heal you in body, mind and Spirit.

for my friends who have lost loved ones, or who have suffered as a result of the tornado's this Spring, my heart reaches out in prayer to offer you comfort and also that Light and Love will touch your Spirit and heal you with compassion and with Grace.

Spring for me has always been so special.  to see the green... the renewal of life ... it is such a magical process ... and i am so thankful
for the opportunity to be able to once again share my joy with you.

I would like to thank each and every dear friend who continued to offer me messages and lovely comments on my page even though i was not here. My heart rejoices and my Spirit soars just to know you care .

    " ... you will go out in joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains
          and hills will burst into song before you, and all the trees of the
          of the field will clap their hands. "
                                                             ISAIAH 55:12

            A sister is a sister. "

~ My Very Vest Wishes To All My Dear Friends for a Joyous Peaceful & Blessed Easter ~

Each of us is unique. Beautiful. Blessed with intelligence. Given the capacity to grow into
adulthood, most of us in Freedom. Some of us have families, and some of us no longer have family.

"One thing I know " as Oprah always says, ( and believe me she is worthy of quoting) and that is
that we are all family in the sense that we give to each other and share with each other our dignity,
our hearts, our nobility and vision for a world free of pain and suffering. Our ideal this "utopia" destined to ultimately exist within the context of a Global Community where there is
Peace, where there is pure unconditional Love, and where Harmony reigns and Justice is true.

Some of us celebrate other holidays, I also celebrate Passover because my heritage is Judaism.
Our religious beliefs, or non religious beliefs must include and always be the expression of
tolerance. A Global Community that will Embrace and be Enhanced by our differences in every way. Where skin color and backgrounds, Ethnicity and Rituals will not have a place " at the table"
in Light of All that we know and love. And THIS to me is the reason for Easter, and every holiday.

So i just wanted to express my personal thoughts, hopes and dreams with you my dear friends.
Before "arriving" at Care2 each of us knows what our lives were like! For me, my new friends are
like extended family. Your joys and your sorrows are mine also. Thank you for your support and well wishes for me.

If you have the means and wish to sponsor a child at Children's International, found at :
http://www.compassion.com/sponsor_a_child/default.htm?referer=BreastCancerSite55257
or sharing with any one or any creature, in any way, we all know that Compassion & Love Heal!

Love Rosemary
