From Lois Parker:

The donkey told the tiger, "The grass is blue."

The tiger replied, "No, the grass is green ."

The discussion became heated, and the two decided to submit the issue to arbitration, so they approached the lion.

As they approached the lion on his throne, the donkey started screaming: ′′Your Highness, isn't it true that the grass is blue?"

The lion replied: "If you believe it is true, the grass is blue."

The donkey rushed forward and continued: ′′The tiger disagrees with me, contradicts me and annoys me. Please punish him."

The king then declared: ′′The tiger will be punished with 3 days of silence."

The donkey jumped with joy and went on his way, content and repeating ′′The grass is blue, the grass is blue..."

The tiger asked the lion, "Your Majesty, why have you punished me, after all, the grass is green?"

The lion replied, ′′You've known and seen the grass is green."

The tiger asked, ′′So why do you punish me?"

The lion replied, "That has nothing to do with the question of whether the grass is blue or green. The punishment is because it is degrading for a brave, intelligent creature like you to waste time arguing with an a**, and on top of that, you came and bothered me with that question just to validate something you already knew was true!"

The biggest waste of time is arguing with the fool and fanatic who doesn't care about truth or reality, but only the victory of his beliefs and illusions. Never waste time on discussions that make no sense. There are people who, for all the evidence presented to them, do not have the ability to understand. Others who are blinded by ego, hatred and resentment, and the only thing that they want is to be right even if they aren’t.

When IGNORANCE SCREAMS, intelligence moves on.

The vast majority of Americans don’t learn about Indian boarding schools growing up. These Native leaders and educators want to change that.

The vast majority of Americans don’t learn about Indian boarding schools growing up. These Native leaders and educators want to change that.

As the United States federal government gears up to assess the genocide it perpetuated against Native communities for nearly a century, Native leaders and academics say there is one glaring method for accessing truth and healing: education.

Across the Panhandle Plains, dozens of enormous arrows pierce the Texas landscape. These 22-foot-tall sculptures commemorate Quanah Parker, chief of the Comanche (Nʉmʉnʉʉ), and the history of the territory called Comanchería.

Parker was the son of a Quahada Comanche man and a white woman, a heritage that made a lasting impact on his life.

His mother was Cynthia Ann Parker, who was famously captured at age 9 by a group of Comanche during an 1836 raid at her family’s homestead near present-day Mexia. She grew up with the tribe, married chief Peta Nocona, and had three children, of whom Quanah was the first, born around 1845. As an adult, Cynthia Ann was recaptured by the Texas Rangers and forcibly returned to white society.

Quanah never saw his mother again. He was haunted by loss and by resentment toward white Texans. Yet he was also adept at building relationships with them.

For years under Quanah Parker’s leadership, in the 1860s and 1870s, the Quahada Comanche held their territory against increasing force. But after unrelenting pressure from the US Army, they were removed to the Kiowa-Comanche reservation in Oklahoma in the mid-1870s.

On the reservation, Parker continued his leadership, unifying the different Comanche groups and encouraging their cultural traditions while also incorporating white forms of schooling and agriculture. Parker made deals with white ranchers who leased Comanche lands for their cattle to graze, and he negotiated other business dealings with white investors.

In 2011, residents living in the former Comanchería established the Quanah Parker Trail to interpret the Indigenous history of the region in the days before and during colonial settlement. The enormous arrows that mark the trail sites were made by regional sculptor Charles Smith (1942-2018), who lived near Lubbock.

Saturday, September 11 is Quanah Parker Day. Residents and travelers in the Texas Plains Trail Region can stop at the arrows to learn more about specific historical figures and events, or visit https://texasplainstrail.com/events.

Hello all ! Im from Treaty #6 Plains cree ( Canada )
Thank you so much for the invite. Looking forward to more videos 😊
Hello
13 years ago, in June of 2008, I lost my mother. Over the course of the following year, I gained over 100 lbs. Along with the weight gain came anxiety and depression, and substance abuse. Sometime in 2014, I decided to quit taking the opioid pain pills I was prescribed for a back injury, and started treating my back pain with medical ma*****na, and began seeing a therapist. Things slowly began to change for the better, and one year after quitting the pain pills I was able to quit a 35 year alcohol addiction, and haven’t had a drink since. At one time I was taking 9 pills a day, and sometimes up to 16 including pain pills, just to be able to function normally, or what I thought was normal. I had ballooned up to 328 lbs and was near rock bottom when a friend I had met in the Marines reached out to me. He decided to fly from Seattle to Oklahoma and pick me up and take me on a road trip. He drove me up through Kansas where we visited the largest ball of twine, and then to Nebraska to visit another friend we met in the Marines. We had a blast just driving and hanging out reminiscing about past times. For a short moment, he was able to distract my mind from my anxiety, depression, and addiction. In 2019, my youngest son and I decided to quit consuming refined, processed sugars, such as sodas and candy, for 28 days. During this time I lost 28 lbs, but I didn’t change anything else, any of my other bad habits which led me into the mess I was in. I was still lazy and ate a horrible diet. Eventually I ended up changing doctors, one who would help me develop a plan to get me off medications completely. I began walking every day with my wife and lost 60 lbs in 6 months. Then I developed an interest in working out with weights. I began going to the local gym until COVID-19 shut everything down. My goal was to lose 100 lbs in one year. I was 8 months in to it and managed to drop 88 lbs, then got comfortable with my accomplishment and stalled. I experienced set back after set back and injury after injury, but I never gave up. I kept getting back in there for the fight. During the COVID shutdown, I started cardio exercise with a jump rope and resistance exercises just using my own body weight. Eventually COVID restrictions began to ease up and I was able to get back in a gym 27 miles away, 3 days a week, by appointment only. I started running on the treadmill a few minutes at a time, progressing my way up from there. In February of 2021, I weighed 270 lbs. I ended up gaining 22 lbs from working out and trying to build muscle, but still had a massive amount of body fat. It didn’t want to go away no matter how hard I worked out. That’s when I met a friend of mine, Kelly Harris, and he talked to me about energy balance. He explained how to find my own individual energy balance equation and how to set my caloric intake to create a daily energy or calorie deficit. He also encouraged me to strive to burn off 500 calories a day through cardio exercise, mainly to begin training my body to move more every day, and to turn my body into a more efficient fat burning machine. Kelly also talked to me about having the right mindset for success, that the body follows the mind, or the body’s condition mirrors the mind’s condition. So over time I was able to make a mind shift, from one of failure and defeat to one of success and victory, and my body followed right along. I wanted a better life for my family. I wanted to give them the father and husband they so deserve, a healthier and happier me. And that is what continues to drive me now. So with a new mindset and a new plan, I went to work and now I am down to 235 lbs. I went from running a mere few minutes at a time on the treadmill or a two telephone pole distance along a back road, to now running 2 miles a day every day. The new mind and new plan, and showing up every day to put in the required work is continuing to melt my body fat away. My work is not near finished, and I’m not sure where I will end up in regards to my weight, but I know the results will be awesome; I know it’s only a matter of time, which I have plenty of. I know if I set my mind where I want my body to be, my body has no choice but to follow. I’m sharing my story for those I know who are now at the place where I use to be. There is light at the end of the tunnel, and if I can find my way through it, anybody can, if they choose. We all possess the power within us to maximize our fullest potential in becoming the person we desire to be. We just have to decide to do it.
