    My Hero went on his journey.

    Russell Means started on his journey home early this morning.

    He was 72.

    Sorry you have lost your hero.72 doesn't seem that old. I remember when I was a child thinking 40 was sooo old.

    I'm sorry you lost your hero.
    A balanced quilter is one with a project on each finger
    Eat, quilt, sleep, repeat


    Nobody is completely useless, you can always serve as a bad example

    When it comes your time to die,
    be not like those whose hearts are filled
    with the fear of death,
    so that when their time comes they weep
    and pray for a little more time
    to live their lives over again in a different way.

    Sing your death song and
    die like a hero going home.

    I know of Russell Means and he has contributed much to his people. May his soul rest in peace.
