…this message is for you.
I am sorry that you get no rest nor sleep
…neither do your future children.
I am sorry you threw down our birthright
…but some of your children have picked it up.
I am sorry that people speak lies upon your graves
…all the while claiming they have truth.
I am sorry that your children still weep for you
…instead of learning the valiant lesson you taught.
I am sorry that people walk upon your graves
…all the while celebrating a false fat feast.
I am sorry your children have forgotten who you were
…and more importantly, forgotten who they are.
I am sorry that you had to make a choice to give up your life
…but thank you for the gift of life you unselfishly gave to me.
I am sorry… my ancestors,
but by returning to our birthright, I am removing this sorry.
To change what has happened in the past
…only removes oneself from the future.
