You are my best friend. We are a lot alike, actually I guess I am an awful lot like you which is lucky cause I really like you! You understand me and have always believed in me and told me how proud you were of me. I am really lucky for that. You are my best friend. I’m sure you might have guessed as much but I often give thanks for you, to god or the universe or whatever. You are my best friend. You are the one person I believe when you tell me everything will work out in this crazy life. I would’nt trade you for anything mom! You are my best friend, you will always be my best friend.

Me and my best friend

Chief Tecumseh’s words of wisdom

August 13, 2012

So live your life that the fear of death can never enter your heart.
Trouble no one about their religion;
respect others in their view, and demand that they respect yours.
Love your life, perfect your life, beautify all things in your life.

Seek to make your life long and its purpose in the service of your people.
Prepare a noble death song for the day when you go over the great divide.
Always give a word or a sign of salute when meeting or passing a friend,
even a stranger, when in a lonely place.
Show respect to all people and grovel to none.

When you arise in the morning give thanks for the food and for the joy of living.
If you see no reason for giving thanks, the fault lies only in yourself.

Abuse no one and no thing, for abuse turns the wise ones to fools
and robs the spirit of its vision.

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.
