Wise words from the past. We are one species with many common desires and goals. Our differences enrich us all with variety in food, crafts, art, celebrations, and when we are fortunate we can share and enjoy those differences. Differences in appearance enrich also but as surface only attributes should never negatively impact our acceptance of each other.
"I could see that the white man did not care for each other the way our people did...They would take everything from each other if they could...some... had more of everything than they could use, while crowds of people had nothing at all... This could not be better than the old ways of my people." - Black Elk
There is a Native American legend that says, “If you have a secret wish, capture a butterfly and whisper your wish to it. Since butterflies cannot speak, your secret is ever safe in their keeping. Release the butterfly, and it will carry your wish to the Great Spirit, who alone knows the thoughts of butterflies. By setting the butterfly free, you are helping to restore the balance of nature, and your wish will surely be granted."
