When the earth is ravaged and the animals are dying,
a new tribe of people shall come unto the earth from many colors, classes, creeds,
and who by their actions and deeds shall make the earth green again.
They will be known as the warriors of the Rainbow
-- Old Native American Prophecy
Some time in the future, the Indians said, the animals would begin to disappear.
People would no longer see the wolf, or the bear, or the eagles.
And, the story goes, the giant trees would also disappear.
And people would fight with each other and not love each other.
And, the story goes, the beautiful rainbow in the sky would fade away,
and people would not see the rainbow anymore.
Well, children would come.
And these children would love the animals, and they would bring back the animals.
They would love trees, and they would bring back the giant trees.
And these children would love other people
and they would help people to live in peace with, each other.
And these children would love the rainbow,
and they would bring back the beautiful rainbow in the sky.
For this reason the Indians called these children the rainbow warriors.
Now let me ask you a question.
Do you love animals or hate animals? (We love animals.)
Do you love trees or hate trees? (We love trees.)
Do you love people or hate people? (We love people.)
Do you love the rainbow or hate the rainbow? (We love the rainbow.)
Well, if you love animals and trees, people and rainbows,
then maybe you are the rainbow warriors?

A Pondering Moment:
By now many have heard the calling of the Rainbow Warrior unification. The tasks that need to be done must be done throughout the world, not just in Turtle Island. If you have heard the calling, then there will be others in your area that are wanting to do what is needed. Get together and form your group and we all will beginning to do them together. My group is starting in March, just before the season of growth and rejuvenation. It would be great to see all groups starting together throughout the four corners of Mother Earth.
Be in prayer daily, ask for God's guidance and prepare yourselves. The time has come to do that which governments refuse to do. Take the time now to understand the scope of all we need to do. Let us bring the environment back from destruction. Let us stop the animal abuse, the slaughtering of the sacred horse, and end the wolf hunts. For those that remain in cities, you can still help. Form groups to be in contact with governments. For those in smaller towns, form groups to be in contact with local officials. For those that are willing to go off the grid and live off the land, form your groups to replant the plants, trees, bushes, etc. t hat is necessary for food to the natural habitats of the animals in your area.
Be warned, however, you will meet resistance. Do not be swayed or undeterred in your task. You are doing this for a far greater purpose than that of a mere few. We will begin to bring back balance. Educate those who will listen about what is needed. May God, The Creator be with you, and may each step you take from this day forward be in prayer.
