From Stands with Fists to Dances with Wolves


“For three quarters of my life, I have been like the character in the film Dances with Wolves whose Lakota name translates to Stands with Fists.” As many of you can attest (Mom), ever since I was young, I stood with fists when confronted with something with which I was not in agreement. Not only would I physically stand rigidly with my hands clenched into fists, but I would also argue until my face turned blue anything that didnt fit into my worldview.” A writer and remarkable spirit diagnosed with cancer shares vividly from his journey, a journey that takes him from a place of blind opposition to one of empathic inclusion.
