he "Land of Milk and Honey", is sacred in our special place of Mother Earth. With this book, we honor the spirit and wisdom of its people, the productive power of the land, the importance of the animals and the legacy of our ancestors, from ancient civilizations to the recent past of 1836. While we thank the many people who are sharing their reflections in this book, we know they represent but a fragment of the families who have contributed so richly to our history. Remaining steadfast through the years, they have surmounted sorrows and disappointments, natural disasters and financial failures to thrive and succeed. As we surround ourselves with the beauty of our seasons, may we remember it is now our turn in time to enrich the quality of life through our thoughts, our actions, our celebrations and ceremonies. Everything counts, with vibrations spreading throughout the world... may they instill a renewed spirit of peace, equality and the goodness of life as we know it.
