Standing Rock Feb 21, 2017- What Today Means

After months of protest and after an incredible amount of injustice towards Native American sisters and brothers, the government has officially declared it will cut off access to the main resistance camp at Standing Rock, Oceti Sakowin, shutting it down, and most likely forcing its inhabitants out.

They are peacefully protesting. They are conducting behavior that is protected by the US constitution. So why are they being treated like criminals and terrorists?

I pray for the water protectors. They are taking on the most difficult battle of all Americans, because they are fighting the Unstoppable Empire, the very beast itself.

What has really changed? This is how they have been treated for many decades. Centuries. Nothing has changed between the relationship of the American government and the original Americans, except in all the ways the American government has deceived its people.

This is what occurs when profits are put before people. When oil flowing through pipes is more important than the lives of people.

This is not an overreaction. This is a very real fight for survival. There water is now in more danger than ever before. Just like our grandmother Earth.

Pray for Standing Rock.

 

Irvine Great Park- Now Thats A Cool Project!

I played soccer at the new OC Great Park in Irvine this past Tuesday (Thanks to the really cool MeetUp app) and it was awesome!

Its being built on the old El Toro Marine Corps Air Station- and it is going to use all 1,300 acres of the old land (Twice the size of Manhattans’ Central Park.)

Going there now you will see that the land in every direction is being worked on in someway. As for the parts that are finished, they look amazing.

I recommend checking it out in the near future, when more of it is complete and you can actually get a grasp of how big the place is.

Also, if you like soccer, download the meet up app and find the group that meets in Irvine once a week.
