Our community is experiencing a serious split which is threatening our mission. A few of the idealistic young
people are pushing for radical changes in our governance. While we "elders" recognize their idealism and sympathize with many of their issues, it is threatening the stability of our mission. I won't try to explain details, but while they are being respectful (mostly) in their demands, it is costing too much time, energy, and attention. I'm hoping we can find common ground and move forward. The rainbow is a good omen!
This is a cancer treatment center in one of the pueblo reservations we walked through. They told us they have been trying to get the uranium waste cleaned up for over 50 years, but infrequent and feeble efforts by our govt and the mining companies have been futile. Their water is contaminated and disease levels very high.
We had to fill our water tanks here which made us uneasy. They drink it all the time.
