indomitable spirit."
- Tom Brown, Jr., The Tracker

a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way.
Sing your death song, and die like a hero going home."

    WHEN ALL THE TREES HAVE BEEN CUT DOWN,
    WHEN ALL THE ANIMALS HAVE BEEN HUNTED,
    WHEN ALL THE WATERS ARE POLLUTED,
    WHEN ALL THE AIR IS UNSAFE TO BREATHE,
    ONLY THEN WILL YOU DISCOVER YOU CANNOT EAT MONEY
    ~CREE PROPHECY

    CERTAIN THINGS CATCH YOUR EYE,
    BUT PURSURE ONLY THOSE
    THAT CAPTURE YOUR HEART
