Soaked in Emotion

I wake up this morning,  my first away from Pine Ridge, and I'm soaked in confusing emotion. I met so many champions of change this week, and it leaves me hopeful.  I saw so much pain caused by an insane amount of youth suicide and  premature death that I'm deeply saddened. I have mental images burned in my head that leave me mad.  I know the beauty of the land,  the air,  and the smiles and I'm at peace.  Let us stay aware,  speak loudly, and support change from within.
