I was just home from two weeks on a horse, riding and praying. The fourth annual Love Water not Oil ride against the proposed Enbridge Sandpiper and Line 3 corridor was over.  The day after we finished, Enbridge came out with an amazing announcement. We have puzzled gratefully since.

My Facebook feed is rolling with new feeds from those headed to North Dakota to join those protecting the drinking water for the people of Standing Rock and Cheyenne River. Other folks are fundraising using a variety of social media tools. And, still other people are gathering food and supplies for the many people camped near the river site. Plus dozens of tribes, organizations, and individuals are sending letters of support.

Jim Northrup wasn’t feeling great. In fact, he was very sick. But he was not worried. He knew where he was headed.
