more from Richard Wagamese’s One Native Life:


We learned that no one of us is ever far away from others,
that we all carry the same baggage in life,
that when we allow ourselves to hear each other, we are joined forever.

Everyone has a story. That’s what the [sharing] circle teaches us. We become better people, a better species, when we take the time to hear them. That’s how you change the world, really.
