Written by the Original Arizona Cielo en Tierra Grandmothers, 1995
We, The Grandmothers, have gathered on the Arizona desert.
We hear our children cry, our grandchildren cry,
Mother Earth cry.
When the Grandmothers speak, the world will heal.
We issue a calling to Grandmothers to form circles
to begin the process of restoring compassion and love to our vital institutions, and to eliminate injustice and violence.
The Gateway will be the Year of the Grandmothers.
