O ye loved ones of God!
Be ye firm of foot, and fixed of heart, and through the power of the Blessed Beauty’s help, stand ye committed to your purpose. Serve ye the Cause of God. Face ye all nations of the world with the constancy and the endurance of the people of Bahá, that all men may be astounded and ask how this could be, that your hearts are as well-springs of confidence and faith, and as mines so rich in the love of God.
On a related note, Friday night was the big night where I had organized a community forum and facilitated the dialogue. We decided that we needed to do this in response to recent hate crimes against the Native American community here in Rapid City. On the panel was Mayor Hanks; Elizabeth Cook-Lynn (Native Author & poet); Cindy Lloyd (civil rights activist); Andrew Iron Shell (Native community organizer); Captain of Rapid City Police, Doug Thrash; Josie Chase (Clinical Social worker); and Don Frakenfeld (former SD Legislator/Forensic Economist). It was a packed house with Native and White people present to address this issue. We had the media there and it went really well in my opinion. I am STILL exhausted from this event- it took everything out of me.

Here is the other one, interviewing my boss:
The stories aren't the best, but atleast we go on the stations!!
So I believe I deserve this trip to LA to hang on the beach in Malibu with my man. PEACE!
