“We can make a difference. It starts with learning about your own gifts, and sharing those with others. It continues when you begin to look at your community and start helping them share their gifts. It’s about taking care…of one another, ourselves and the entire Turtle Island. Mother Earth and our entire human nation deserve it…when it comes to sharing our gifts and acting with integrity, bring it!” – MC [excerpt: Open Letter to North End Youth]
