Resilience and resistance

Yesterday the invocation of the spirit of resistance at Standing Rock was inaudible at the #NoDAPL protest at Civic Center. This beautiful video stands in for that omission.

We don't have anyplace else to go ...we didn't matter. .. Our spirit is called to act. .. We have to make sure that this black snake is killed. We have to look in our hearts to ask how far are we willing to go...What is your spirit telling you that you want to do? ...

When our ancestors went into battle, we didn't know what the consequences were going to be for our children. All we knew was that if we did nothing, things were not going to go well for our children. Don't operate out of fear. Operate out of hope .... The only thing that keeps me going is prayer. I have to have faith that my prayers are being heard. ... We must show the rest of the world how to live ...

This is the key. We don't have anywhere else to go. This means we will not run away. We will stay and fight.
