The Fox River
Those who came before us were in love with this river….They chanted tribal songs of gratitude….Blessed the water with tobacco....Told grandfather stories of how the land laid itself open to make way for the great spirit river....The life blood of all people, of all generations to come. The voyagers and settlers honored the river as a free-flowing highway....A nearby place to build homes....A pure and reckoning force for industrial power....Aren't we also in love with this river? This common ancestor whose water runs through our veins? Aren't we voyagers and settlers who bless the way early morning scatters light across the water? Don't we all share a collective vision, a sense of holiness as a caretaker of the Fox River? We are already the ancestors of new generations….
Will they not know how much we loved this river?
