What we long for, the hunger never fulfilled, is found not in things but animals & people. As a WASP I hold dear my long past relative: a Crow. His spirit and God's tells me that my fortune is to be found in the halt, lame, blind and within all the neglecteed and abandoned people. As a WASP I know that this land upon which I stand once "belonged" to a people who had no sense of ownership or property. By racial definition I am complicit in the destruction of their religion, their food supply, their people and now their sanity by holding them captive and enslaved to poverty. I personally feel too old to do more than 'talk' and cannot 'walk-the-walk' but merely beg you to love them as you love yourself.

And sadly most are pumped with anti psychotics that they do not need or have ever needed.
