She stood in the crowed stadium.
A long moment of silence.
With one hand on her heart,
the other wiping the steady stream of tears from her face.
The flag waving of Freedom.
What do you remember?
I remember courageous people…
What this passage of time has given me…
To honour life.
To have reverence for the sacredness of being alive.
To acknowledge gratitude daily.
I want to remember to send light…
To ease the wounds of loss.
To hold the space of love.
To guard what is sacred.
I want to remember to have faith…
To live in joy.
To recognize the working of the Divine.
To celebrate Triumph!

Standing in a moment of Quiet Remembrance…
The day after the horrific event on the world trade center towers at the Pendleton Roundup in Oregon, one of the ten largest rodeo’s in the world.
It was one of the first times that she had felt blessed to be an American.
After being forced to denounce her Canadian citizenship when she was not yet sixteen.
Excerpted from her upcoming book: HIGH FIVE TO TRIUMPH!
