    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.
