“Before our white brothers arrived to make us civilized men, we didn’t have any kind of prison. We had no locks, therefore there were no thieves. When someone was so poor he couldn’t afford a horse, tent or blanket, he would receive it all as a gift. We were in bad shape before white men arrived. I don’t know how to explain how we were able to manage without these fundamental things that (so they tell us) are so necessary for civilized society” - John (Fire) Lame Deer, Sioux Lakota, 1903-1976
John (Fire) Lame Deer “Before our white brothers arrived to make us civilized men, we didn’t have any kind of prison. Because of this, we had no delinquents. Without a prison, there can be no delinquents. We had no locks nor keys and therefore among us there were no thieves. When someone was so poor that he couldn’t afford a horse, a tent or a blanket, he would, in that case, receive it all as a gift. We were too uncivilized to give great importance to private property.

God tells us in His Word how He made us--"I am fearly and wonderfully MADE." It is God who MADE us. He knew us BEFORE we were formed in our mother's womb. That tells us that we were a person to God even at that time.
"He didn’t need tattoos all over his body, he didn’t need carefully crafted facial hair, he didn’t need a fashion consultant, he didn’t need to pose, he didn’t need props, he didn’t need a group of guys to tell him how great he was. No entourage, not tough guy talk, no bragging, no nothing. He was just cool, period." - George Carrara

"I remember that we stood naked in the sauna, in line to have our hair removed, and I wondered—what are all these men doing here? We couldn’t recognize one another anymore. I approached one of the Jewish guards and asked him if he would have a word with someone so that they wouldn’t cut off my pigtails, and he replied that so long as I had a head, hair would grow, while if I didn’t have a head, I wouldn’t need hair anyway." —Dita (Kurschner)

Jesus Christ didn’t only come to be our Savior and Lord, our King and Master…. He came to show us something that transforms our heart and life in a deep way: true friendship. He died for His friends. And He died for you and me, so that we would know that He loves us too, and wants to be our friend. A true friend… Who gives us friendship like nobody else can give us. By laying down His life, He gave us the ultimate example of how deep true friendship goes.

One Of My Favorites! Luther Standing Bear was an Oglala Lakota Sioux Chief - "We did not think of the great open plains, the beautiful rolling hills, the winding streams with tangled growth, as ‘wild’. Only to the white man was nature a ‘wilderness’ and only to him was it ‘infested’ with ‘wild’ animals and ‘savage’ people. To us it was tame. Earth was bountiful and we were surrounded with the blessings of the Great Mystery." Silbury Hill 5.7.2009.

This is so true! Many ppl say "well we deserve to be loved"! NO!!! We are sinners! We deserve nothing! We were children of wrath and hated Christ! BUT because he first loved us we are now acceptable in his sight!
Our mistakes make us who we were meant to become, who we wanted to be before we made them.
“Negro is an interesting word. This country couldn’t call us Africans, because if it had, we would have understood some things about ourselves. We would not have been this “Negro America”, constantly enslaved even after slavery. It would have given us a sense of continuity. So, they had to say 'colored' and 'Negro' and 'nigger' to keep us in our place- to remind us that we were only from this country.” ~Sonia Sanchez

Dr. Wernher von Braun - THE rocket scientist. This man built NASA and took us to the moon. He was a former Nazi scientist brought to the U.S. under 'Project Paperclip'. When asked how the space program was able to advance so quickly, it is rumored he responded with a wink and a nod saying, "We had help" (referring to E.T.s). Before his death, he revealed that advanced technologies are being withheld from humanity - technologies that would free us from fossil fuels.
You have no idea how true this is. My Narcissist destroyed me then pretended to pick up the pieces when really he was keeping me in his prison. He had this delusional saviour mentality that he was helping everyone around him when really he was putting everyone down so he could feel better about himself
