Walking the Red Road
‎'Corn is sacred, everything that grows is sacred,' she said.
'But I warn you, there will come a time when the sons of your sons will forget this.
Then hunger and sorrow will return to the world.'
She shook her head.
'It will not end until - unless - their grandchildren learn once more this lesson -
the only lesson that is worth remem...bering: how to love and respect the Earth.'
