Getting mostly packed to leave in the morning, so many people to thank, so little time.
Some highlights (sorry for those missed):
Fred Cogan with InStove (pictured) with the wood-fired rocket stove that can sterilize instruments; WellFuture with donated children’s vitamins and probiotics; Cafe Mam with 50 pounds of organic coffee for the main kitchen; Dusty Dmitri Bloomingheart for loads of stuff for both trips, this time returnable mugs and water bottles; Joanne Holland for the buffalo hide; Brad Mowreader with a wood stove and wool blankets; Laurel Caccivio and Katrina Mangiafico with a wood stove and wool blankets; Clare Strawn with a canopy, tools, axes, and lots of other stuff; Nomadics Tipis with a tipi and so much help.
The 78 people who donated cash to my gofundme account which made this all possible and is used to buy things that otherwise would fall through the cracks. All the people who mailed stuff.
Here is what I have learned lately. People are good. Really good. Yep, still evil in the world, like the corporate mother rapers, but I am filled with hope, because with this much love, we can’t lose. Love and Service always win over hate and greed.
While my focus is care for people in the camps, we need to keep our attention on the cause, as protecting the water in Standing Rock is just the beginning.
Stay on top of the politics people; I will keep on the herbs.
