Chief Leonard George Reflects on Working Toward Peace
mother the earth is suffering. We have people with the vision
and understanding who care. Their wish is to save wildlife
and ecosystems, to stop the suffering of indigenous people.
But we fail to realize that the first step in healing is
within ourselves. We must face the worst in ourselves in
order to be our best. We have to shed the tears of oppression
and learn to love, honor, and respect ourselves. Once we
have it within, then we have to give it away. Our children
must inherit a better way.
