At this given & blessed time; only how we will define as a wonderful day. Give thanks that we are all gathered here in a good way. Love, laugh, hug, sing and dance to the timeless Sacred Beat of our drum. Rounddance I will. I give my hand as I take my brother's dance. Hold my hand sister, forget your troubles and dance. Let the chain of love link young and old. Unity soothes our souls. Oh how I long for the loved ones that passed hear and feel these beautiful songs. In our hearts, we hold and never forget them. HONOR, RESPECT, and DANCE, my family & friends. Dreams of our lost people are forever young in a promised place that keeps us strong. It is written that we are not promised another day, so let's greet one another with love, and part the same way. I love you all. We shall meet again. My People, my Family, my Friends. •Belinda Gopher
