Pipeline rupture spews oil into creek 150 miles from Standing Rock.
Sometimes there are no words
when stories from the media are full of turds.
It's a world of extremes but I am in it for the ride;
controlling the tide of social media submergence of the mind.
A new awesome video blows my mind each day, as if “it's no big deal.”
Another President was elected and I still can't believe it's real.
Youtube autoplay on until the day is all gone.
The news that trickled in had me saying, “Have things gone all wrong?”
Yet at the same time that I said it – someone wrote a song...
If only there were a way to measure how many smiles there were today.
Did you know that light and darkness are actually friends that play?
They meet every morning at sunrise.
“This isn't about what we are opposed to, it's about what we stand for,”
said an Indigenous leader at Standing Rock.
Behind the scenes WE came together;
uniting all nations and tribes,
bringing thousands of veterans in to protect our streams.
There is a whole world outside of our screens.
The fact alone that Bernie Sanders exists,
I would have never even dreamed.
The pot for potent change is about to boil.
I feel blessed to be an observer and care taker of the soil.
Listen to my song – I Stand with Standing Rock
Birthed on Earth out of the same carbon make up,
we are photosynthesis in formation –
a literal definition of “water is life.”
Everybody is somebody,
experiencing this journey through a different lens.
I won't even pretend that I know how it's going to end.
The movement to #stopDAPL was/is about so much more than a pipeline.
Despicable acts of unjust violence were met with global organization, cooperation, community service, ongoing financial support, art, song and prayer.
A history of differences were set aside as hundreds of tribes came together to stand.
The focus on cultural integration and honour of sacred indigenous tribes were at the forefront for once – and it's about time!
Despite the odds against "us" with social platform censorship and almost no mainstream media coverage, hundreds of thousands "busted the internet" and brought awareness to the complex webs of vested corporate interest and outdated environmental practices.
Through sharing stories and independent live streams; making calls to the white house and creating #bankexit, the concept of global action has began and continues to surface.
Though our service to protect our land is far from over...
Can we just take a moment to meditate on how fucking awesome we are?
