May we respond better to risks and dangers
with a beloved community
who can be counted on
as a woven basket
that encompasses the gifts
for protection, for honor, for ceremony,
and for expressions of interconnectedness.
May we prevail in our intentions
to make a gift of the world
to the next generations
of beings living and nonliving
that help it all come together for good.
|Ma Theresa "Tet" Gustilo Gallardo
