National Museum of the Native American


Lift your spirits

and sing

to the four winds,

for a new museum to honor
the hearts and souls
of Native Americans
is about to be unveiled
in Washington DC.

It's been a long time comin.

Were you listening to NPR? And I should have known you would post this announcement. You are very good at public service announcements!

If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane, I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again.

The blessing would be that they would let us join in...

Kacy~
And you know dear lady ... that a big piece of my heart will soar through my Spirit today, wishing I could be there ... knowing I cannot ... but ... at last~

A quote from the article -Hupa Medicine Man MERV GEORGE, SR, said
quote:
The museum will open at last after 15 years of planning in an honored position close to the Capitol. "Kind of fitting," mused George: "First peoples here, last place on the Mall."


Thanks for sharing this with others, Kacy~

You're welcome, Mr Krawdad. It's way over due, but at least it is hopefully something positive, a healing gesture perhaps?

I too, wish I could be there!

The greatest beauty on earth, is
found in the hearts of those
who love....
