“Like Ironweed” Chiricahua Apache
there is a long period of reconstruction ahead. We must take the lead. A
remorseful mumbling that we are sorry won't fill the bill at all. We ought to
sit down with the family and frankly analyze the past as we now see it, being
very careful not to criticize them. Their defects may be glaring, but chances
are that our own actions are partly responsible. So we clean house with
the family, asking each morning in meditation that our Creator show us the way
of patience, tolerance, kindliness and love.
