On this day of remembrance may I quote Talking Panther from the 65th Octave?
“In the beginning, we were one. We were in the middle and this was good. All knew the other and all were in harmony with nature. Then some of us wandered and left the middle. Some went west. Others east. We lost touch.
“In the east and the west as they settled, they forgot that there was a middle. For their sons, the east and the west became the middle. Those in the west saw the sunrise and called it the beginning as those in the east saw the same sun setting and called it the end. The difference was confusing and the confusion made the difference an issue.
“In the beginning we were one. We were united by all that was common.
“Then as we moved we became united by all that was different.
“Spread apart the view was beyond the vision of the eagle and it became easier to look at the horizon than beyond.
“Few could see that we are still part of a whole.
“This was the beginning of ignorance and its son fear. Fear made each feel less and made each want to be more. Fear blinded the truth that all are equal and that we really are all one.”
