Artist's Description

A tribute to American Indian Veterans.
When Native Americans honor their warriors it is in a different sort of mind set from how other cultures honor their warriors.  It is said by Native Americans that, “America honors their veterans three days a year; Native Americans honor their warriors every time they meet.” 
Do not stand at my grave and weep;
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow;
I am the shimmering glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain;
I am the gentle autumn’s rain.
When you awaken in the morning’s hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft star that shines at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry.
I am not there; I did not die.
