TWO WOLVES

In America, this 4th of July weekend was a time for reflection and pride. I believe it is a time to remember all of the selflessness that our forefathers (and Mothers) have given in the name of freedom.
Each of us has the oportunity to be the person we wish to be.
Below is an old Cherokee parable that gets to the root of it all.




One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people.
He said, "My son, the battle is between two wolves inside us all.

"One is Evil - It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.

"The other is Good - It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith."

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, "Which wolf wins?"

The old Cherokee simply replied, "The one you feed."

Spectrum Industries wishes everyone a happy and safe Independence Day.
