“If we could change ourselves, the tendencies in the world would also change. As a man changes his own nature, so does the attitude of the world change towards him. … We need not wait to see what others do.” ~ Gandhi
From all 4 corners of the Earth, let us pray.
Pray for justice, pray for peace, pray for nations, states, communities, a World that cherishes its’ Children, Loves and Honours its Women, and for Men to rise up in Love; to Honour themselves and the Women and Children.
Yes, there are many groups asking the Prime Minister of Canada, Stephen Harper, to do a public inquiry into Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women and Girls; which is required and needed on a global level also. However, for personal/collective responsibility on change, don’t wait on this one man, who has failed and abused his role as a leader so miserably, already. Let us work to support, strengthen, and empower each other to create a world we want all to be safe, free, and cherishes the gift of life.
Let the change begin with you, in your home.
Love your children. As a collective peoples, love each other. Have absolutely NO tolerance or allowance for any form of violence. Seek out supports, healthy friends, go to school, seek goodness in all that you do, and heal from within.
Help to create this society we all live in, to be a peaceful one. Love so much that love is the strength you need to take action.
Let us keep an eye out for one another.
In honour of Loretta Saunders and all Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women and Girls, including in honour of all of the victims and survivors of violence. All, need to become more aware, intolerant of Violence but promote Love and Healing. Collectively, we will create the society we want for our children, for our women, for our peoples, for our nations/communities.
From all 4 corners of this Mother Earth, we will pray for Safety, Peace, and Love.
So for this moment, when you ask, ‘What can I do?’
Let the Change start with you and ripple out to the 4 corners of Mother Earth.
Be the Change you want to see in the World!

Every morning this week I have woken up to my email inbox and social media feed filled with inspiring stories and images of resistance as part of the Idle No More and Defenders of the Land call for Sovereignty Summer. Sovereignty Summer is “a campaign of coordinated non-violent direct actions to promote Indigenous rights and environmental protection in alliance with non-Indigenous supporters.”
Colonialism in North America has been designed to ensure the forced displacement of Indigenous peoples from their territories, the destruction of autonomy and self-determination within Indigenous governance, and the attempted assimilation of Indigenous cultures and traditions. This has been justified through racist civilizing discourses, such as the discovery doctrine and terra nullius, whichuphold the political and legal right for colonial powers to conquer supposedly barren Indigenous lands.Read more
