Souls by Jacob Nez
A dog was killed in the middle of the street where I walk. I pulled him over by his legs so the cars would not keep running over him. I remember when we studied this quote on the Three Ohiyesa by Charles Alexander Eastman. “We believe that the spirit pervades all creation and that every creature possesses a soul in some degree, though not necessarily a soul conscious of itself. The tree, the waterfall, the grizzly bear, each is an embodied Force, and as such an object of reverence.”
So, I can’t understand why non Natives show such disrespect toward homeless people who everyone knows have souls.
I don’t care what everyone thinks. I gave thanks for the dog by the side of the road and I stop and talk to the street people with a little extra care.
