Leonard Peltier: Happy 70th Birthday!

September 15, 2014


September 12, 2014.

We celebrate your birthday month, with renewed strength, gentleness and grace!

by: Jennifer Steel

Spent 10 days in solitary confinement
Charged with uttering a threat

Sentenced with probation
What I learned is to value not squander

Got to thinking behind those walls
Got me thinking beyond those walls

Do they think of me inside these walls?
As much, as I, think of them?

My other crimes are of the heart:

• superbia
• avaritia
• luxuria
• invidia
• gula
• ira
• acedia

SALIGIA: a mnemonic acronym, in Latin
For the seven deadly sins!

Pray for all those in hospitals, jails and prisons.
Visit them.
Write to them.
