    A "real" hero passes on

    The last of the original Wind Talkers has passed away. May the Great Spirit honor him. After what we as a nation did to these peoples, they stood up and did this for our troops:

    ^^^^What they said^^^^^

    Navajo Blessing Way Prayer



    In beauty may I walk.

    All day long may I walk.

    Through the returning seasons may I walk.

    On the trail marked with pollen may I walk.

    With grasshoppers about my feet may I walk.
    With dew about my feet may I walk.
    With beauty may I walk.
    With beauty before me, may I walk.

    With beauty behind me, may I walk.
    With beauty above me, may I walk.
    With beauty below me, may I walk.
    With beauty all around me, may I walk.

    In old age wandering on a trail of beauty, lively, may I walk.
    In old age wandering on a trail of beauty, living again, may I walk.
    It is finished in beauty.
    It is finished in beauty
    If you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans.

    Washington didn't use his freedom of speech to defeat the British, He shot them!
