How do you send your baby to school on Friday and then have to bury them on Monday? How? Why? These questions may never be answered but even the most tragic of circumstances bring us closer to certain truths. One of these truths is that God whispers to us in our pleasures and shouts at us through our pain.
This is not to say that any one of us deserves the pain but simply that we may sometimes need a quick and sudden dunk into freezing water in order to wake up. Wake up to what? Choose an issue and start from there.
The fact is that we can come together and make our Light shine brighter as many rather than burn out as one. We can shine brighter than violence and hatred. Together we can illuminate love and power rather than cringe in the shadows or close our doors in fear.
Love is universal and the only answer to all that ails us. With my deepest condolences to the families that lost their precious little ones, I dedicate this week's article to the universal bond of a mother's love.
Here's the latest article from the Native American site at BellaOnline.com.

A mother’s love for her kids is the same around the world regardless of financial status or culture. We all wish for our children to enjoy health and happiness. For many American Indian children growing up in poverty the absence of fancy foods or expensive gifts doesn't mean an absence of love.
