Our Spirits are joining together in such a beautiful way - those that are here and those on the other side! The prophecies are being realized.

It just really makes me wounder how the Europeans could slaughter so many Native Americans when they were Peace loving people and put a hand out in friendship when they landed and taught them how to grow things so that they could make it through the first winter. The Native Americans had no reason to be hostile and kill each other until the Europeans came, then they still didn`t until they were being killed off. Talk about biting the hand that feeds you. Here is a good example.

So why cant this be the measure of the US president?   Sure would be a good start!
