May your choices enhance the circle of life
"Many times, people called us revolutionaries. I like that, although it often seems used in a negative sense, by the deceivers. Revolution refers to something traveling in a circle. All the creator's work seems to be in a circle--the Earth, the Moon, the seasons, or a man's life.
If my imprisonment in any way has brought a view to the public of how we should stand together, how we need to protect our freedoms and regain what we have lost ... then I feel honored. There is no reason why technology can't ultimately be used to protect our Mother Earth.
Let us be revolutionaries in such a way that we enhance the circle of life. Let us be revolutionaries that our children, generation after generation, shall enjoy freedom and a healthy clean Mother Earth. Let our lives be based in the circle, not some straight line that has a dead end.'
Leonard Peltier on the occassion of his 60th birthday 2004 in federal prison
