MOONDANCERS WRITE US:

SOME THINGS TO THINK ABOUT:
“We are each of us angels with only one wing, and we can only fly by embracing one another.” ~ Luciano de Crescenzo
“Each of us must rejoice twice when we have a partner for our joy; a friend shares our problems, disappointments and sorrows, and makes them easier to bear, but a friend adds to our joys, our successes, our happiness, and makes them double.” ~ Anonymous
“The heart that loves is always young!” ~ Anonymous
“Generosity is courage of the highest order, for the brave are prodigal of the most precious things.” ~ Charles Caleb Colson
“Being lonely increases the risk of everything from heart attacks to dementia, depression and death, whereas people who are satisfied with their social lives sleep better, age more slowly and respond better to medications. The effect is so strong that curing loneliness is as good for your physical and emotional health as giving up smoking. ~ Jo Marchant, science journalist
MOONDANCE SUPPORTS & RECOMMENDS:
Make the Bison America’s National Mammal
In the early 1800’s, tens of millions of bison stretched across America’s rolling grasslands. Strong and resilient, these herds helped shape our nation’s heartland.By 1884, however, the bison had been hunted to near extinction. It wasn’t until the 1930s that our nation’s leaders were able to restore a small percentage of bison back to public lands. Since then, the American bison population has struggled to rehabilitate any further.
But you can help. WWF is working hard to ensure that large herds of bison are established on public and tribal lands within the Northern Great Plains. They are a powerful testament to the history and heritage of the Plains Indians and the North American continent. Together, we can help the bison make a comeback.
Help us acknowledge the American bison as the symbol of freedom, strength and self-determination it is. Through advocating the passage of the National Bison Legacy Act, we can designate the bison as the national mammal of the United States. TAKE ACTION NOW!
