"The first peace, which is the most important, is that which comes within the souls of people when they realize their relationship, their oneness with the universe and all its powers, and when they realize at the center of the universe dwells the Great Spirit, and that its center is really everywhere.
It is within each of us."

--Black Elk, Black Elk Speaks by John G. Neihardt, 1932

Enjoyed your stories. I also have a web page you may like. Each week I add another story from a live radio show about the old West. You can listen at www.dr-history.com. Just trying to get the word out. Thanks
