From KATHERINE CHESHIRE of the HOPI NATION


Dear Brothers and Sisters, 

     Now, the whole of the world of the sickness diminishes the Peace and  Seeds of Hope. However, with Prayer, I still believe we WILL unite as  the Human Family and Pray this Evil out of our world. 

     The Hopi Elders have instructed us to live very carefully. And we must  not pick up our Bows and Arrows in these troubled times. Of course this  is our first reaction. However, everything the Elders have ever taught  is that Humankinds lives are decided by our loving Prayers to the Creator along with the Spiritual leaders of the World. 

     Our elders have left us much wisdom and a way of grace and a path to  Peace. I pray to you all that you find something in their world and  words that touch the Human Heart. Set a side our words of war and help  us pray. Not only for the Living but all those whom have gone before, and especially the Dear Families and Loved ones that so innocently were disregarded. My prayer is for somehow for all of us to find the peace we  pray for, that all the TWO Hearted peoples some way be touched by the  spirit of the Holy Ancestors, Creator, God, Mother Creator or whatever  your prayer is dedicated to. We must keep our prayer vigils and come  together.

Please look to our Traditional Hopi Web Page:

"Peace will start with the children! If we can get the children to lose the hate, we can get the world to stop hating, and with that we can make the world a much better place." - Gregory Smith, January 13, 2001
The US Congress passed a resolution designating January 1, 2001 as One Day of Peace & Sharing. "One Day of Peace" is a grassroots organization promoting every January 1 as a holiday of Peace and Sharing in Oregon. They are also working with national and international groups to get the day officially recognized throughout the US and the world. In support of this goal, they hope to develop a model for celebrations focusing on the creation of an experience of peace and sharing, within the schools, community, and home.
