|Elder's Meditation of the Day April 23|
|"The real meaning of life is your family, the love that you have, the respect, the traditional ways, and carrying on with them."|
|--Ethel Wilson, COWICHAN|
|The family is the seed of the future. The family is the key to the transfer of cultural information. We should really take a look at how we are looking at our families. Are we treating each family member with respect? Are we passing on the traditional ways? Are we teaching the old songs? Are we participating in the ceremonies? Are we showing the family members how to pray? Are we encouraging each family member to be spiritual? Think about these things today.|
My Creator, today, let me show respect to each family member.
