on forgiveness… from the Water Protectors in North Dakota

I saw this video today on facebook and am out to share it as far and wide as I can.

Watching it… I wept and wept and wept.

These are women on the front lines.  Protecting our water and all people.

Please…pass it on.

The info:

Forgiveness March to Morton County Police Station
Facebook Event here: https://www.facebook.com/events/1778920385700496/

A time for water protectors to relieve themselves
of the burdens of pain, bitterness and anger due
to traumatic experiences with police. Forgiveness
does not mean that what is happening is okay.
It means we choose to respond to hatred with love.
With this release we can then think clearly, act
constructively and truly serve Mitakue Oyas’in,
all our relatives.

We will walk from Legion Park, 1111 10th Av
SW, (along Heart River) to Morton County
Police Station in Mandan, ND. At that point
we will do a ceremony and ask for the ability
to forgive. All are invited. Prayer walk is 1.4
miles each way. Organizers have worked
with Mandan offices to protect and coordinate
this event.

Please no facial coverings, or picket signs for this part.

The video was posted by Lyla June.
Lyla June is a musician, poet, anthropologist, educator, community organizer and public speaker. Many hats, but the underlying prayer is always the same.
She also has a beautiful website over at: http://www.sodizin.net
I send a wave of support out to all who will be joining this march on Sunday.
go easy ~p
