    I also want to leave a Prayer by Bedagi/Big Thunder?Frank T Loring.My Great Great GrandFather
    The Great Spirit is in all things,is in the air that we breathe.The Great Spirit is our Father,but the Earth is our Mother,She nourishes us that which we put in to the ground
    she returns to us.
    Give us Hearts to Understanding,
    Never to take from Creations beauty more than we give.
    Never to destroy wantonly for the furtherance of greed.
    Never to deny to give our hands for building of earths beauty.
    Never to take from her what we cannot use.
    Give us hearts to understand,
    That to destroy earth's music is to create confusion.
    That to wreck her appearance is to blind us to beauty.
    That to callously pollute her fragrance is to make a house of stench.
    That as we care for her she will care for us.
    We have forgotten who we are,We have sought only our own security.
    We have exploited simply for our own ends.We have distorted our own knowledge.
    we have abused our power.
    Great Spirt,whose lands thirst,help us to find the way to refresh your lands
    Great Spirit whose waters are choked with debris and pollution,help up to find the way to cleanse your waters.
    Great Spirit,whose beautiful earth grows ugly fron misuse,help us to find a way to restore beauty to your handiwork.
    Great Spirit,whose creatures are being destoryed,help us to find a way to replenish them.
    Grat Spirit,whose gifts to us are being lost in selfishness and corruption,help us to find a way to restore our humanity.
    Oh,Great Spirit,whose voice I hear in the wind,whose breathe gives life to the World hear me,I need your Strength and Wisdom.
    May I walk in beauty.
