November15 — Water is Life

Standard

Today, we began our journey to activism. 


(Molly sure looks grim, but I didn’t get a happier picture! I think she was cold and hungry…)

In solidarity with Standing Rock, we joined and open forum prayer rally outside the St. Louis office of the Army Corps of Engineers. 


We didn’t bring our own signs (who has space for that in an rv?), but we are thinking about something generic to have for the next rally. 


A statement was shared with the group that implied that the Army Corps may have forced a temporary halt to the DAPL. We can only hope for a more official solution. Too many pipelines have exploded around the world to ignore this issue any longer. 


I don’t know how many people were there, but it was well received by the cars and trucks who passed us by! Two news crews arrived to take video, although we don’t watch tv news, so I don’t know how that turned out. 


Friends of ours are actually at the Oceti Sakowin Camp, and they have given me these suggestions for monetary donations: 

 
More grim faces …. We will work on smiling next time. 


We had to use the restrooms inside the federal building. The guards were friendly, and Zoe thought it was funny that it was just like airport security but we didn’t have to take our shoes off. 


Smiling faces, at last. (We were on our way to eat dinner.) 


And finally, giant bunneez.
