[VIDEO] Weekend Wisdom LIVE Ep4: This Land Is my Land…or Is it?

This week on the US presidential election campaign trail, it’s been all about National Security and Foreign Policy, about defending our land from foreign incursions.

There’s lots to say and write about these complex matters, especially as America marks the 15th anniversary of 9/11 this weekend.

But another equally important story has been bubbling up in this land.

In this episode of Weekend Wisdom, I tell you a story about 3 numbers, 2 women named Alice, and 1 beautiful milestone that unites people on 2 continents.

It’s a story about the original owners of these vast American lands, their current struggle for life and dignity, and about how the human spirit is finally rising up to champion their cause.

Show highlights

– why the folk song “This land is your land” doesn’t tell the whole story about America
– what a half-forgotten community in America has been fighting for 500 years
– how a wise and powerful question led to a swift, do-the-right-thing decision in the current US administration
– some useful resources for you to read before you vote in our 100-day Election 2016 Anthology
