Did you know that today is Red Dress Day? On this day, we wear red dresses or shirts, or hang a red dress in the trees in our yard to represent the estimated 4,000 missing indigenous women in Canada and the estimated 6,000-10,000 missing women in the United States.
Did you know that: “One in three Native women will be raped in their lifetime, and three in five will be physically assaulted. Native women are more than twice as likely to be stalked than other women and, even worse, Native women are being murdered at a rate ten times the national average.”????
That’s right. They have a 1 in three chance of being raped, a 3 in 5 chance of being assaulted, are twice as likely to be stalked, and are 10 times more likely to be murdered than women of any other descent.
As soon as you’re born, they make you feel small By giving you no time instead of it all ‘Til the pain is so big you feel nothing at all A working class hero is something to be A working class hero is something to be
They hurt you at home and they hit you at school They hate you if you’re clever and they despise a fool ‘Til you’re so fucking crazy you can’t follow their rules A working class hero is something to be A working class hero is something to be
When they’ve tortured and scared you for 20 odd years Then they expect you to pick a career When you can’t really function, you’re so full of fear A working class hero is something to be A working class hero is something to be
Keep you doped with religion and sex and TV And you think you’re so clever and classless and free But you’re still fucking peasants as far as I can see A working class hero is something to be A working class hero is something to be
There’s room at the top they are telling you still But first you must learn how to smile as you kill If you want to be like the folks on the hill A working class hero is something to be A working class hero is something to be
If you want to be a hero, well, just follow me If you want to be a hero, well, just follow me
People often complain, and want perfection. They behave as if they have the right to punish others if they do not carry out their ‘assignments’ perfectly.
The same applies to Soul assignments. Despite what our Soul wants to learn, we often head off in a completely other direction. Thankfully, our Soul will not punish us, but we do need to work to make things right.
While you may be tempted to cover things up and not be open about what has happened, especially to yourself, it is best to see what can be done to rectify the wrong.
Years ago, anthropologist Margaret Mead was asked by a student what she considered to be the first sign of civilization in a culture. The student expected Mead to talk about fishhooks or clay pots or grinding stones.
But no. Mead said that the first sign of civilization in an ancient culture was a femur (thighbone) that had been broken and then healed. Mead explained that in the animal kingdom, if you break your leg, you die. You cannot run from danger, get to the river for a drink or hunt for food. You are meat for prowling beasts. No animal survives a broken leg long enough for the bone to heal.
A broken femur that has healed is evidence that someone has taken time to stay with the one who fell, has bound up the wound, has carried the person to safety and has tended the person through recovery. Helping someone else through difficulty is where civilization starts, Mead said.
We are at our best when we serve others. Be civilized.
A New Structure is being secured. This platform will be well guarded.
This New Structure is potentially built upon the advice and information of a false prophet who is deceiving Big Powers in this world for personal gain. There could be some unreliable deals made, as someone’s being sneaky and swiftly moving away, but they are seen and found-out.
The time is approaching where truth will be known. This will cause quite the upheaval, a mighty confrontation could ensue or the population may rage over the information they are told.
The storm will clear very quickly and economic stability will take place. An agreement will be reached and a commitment to this agreement will be made manifest.

Man, proud man! Drest in a little brief authority, Most ignorant of what he’s most assur’d, His glassy essence, like an angry ape, Plays such fantastic tricks before high heaven As makes the angels weep. ~ Shakespeare
Authority intoxicates, And makes mere sots of magistrates. The fumes of it invade the brain, And make men giddy, proud and vain; By this the fool commands the wise The noble with the base complies. The sot assumes the rule of wit, And cowards make the base submit. ~ Butler
