I have a deep and profound respect for the ways and beliefs of my Native American ancestors. The following is one my favorite quotes; attributed to being the last words of Crowfoot, a Blackfoot Warrior.

 

 

~ What is Life? ~

"A little while and I will be gone from among you," he said. "Whither, I cannot tell. From nowhere we came; into nowhere we go. What is life? It is the flash of a firefly in the night. It is the breath of a buffalo in the wintertime. It is the little shadow which runs across the grass and loses itself in the sunset."
