An old Cherokee is teaching his grandson about life. "A fight is going on inside me," he said to the boy.

"It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves. One is evil—he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego." He continued, "The other is good—he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith. The same fight is going on inside you—and inside every other person, too."

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, "Which wolf will win?"

The old Cherokee simply replied, "The one you feed."

John Peter Thompson: YouTube snippets from Salubria Presentation

Nicely done video by Suan Gervasi on an important part of the History of Salubria, a tale I am now calling: "Slavery and Strawberries - Murder and Mysteries"

The documentary includes excerpts from my presentation on the full History of Salubria, its times and context

NB: demolition of the buildings wrong – it was 2003, not 2006

Cindy. What's YOUR stories? Are you proud that a 14 year old kid murdered two innocent children? That's not something I care to preserve.
