~ "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."And all of the above are threatened when the governing powers that be forget to hold nature in high esteem as provider of all that sustains us on this planet.
~ Crowfoot, Blackfoot warrior and orator ~
