Quotation (repeated elsewhere on this web site because we are so fond of it):
"A man told his grandson: "A terrible fight is going on inside me -- a
fight between two wolves. One is evil, and represents hate, anger,
arrogance, intolerance, and superiority . The other is good, and represents
joy, peace, love, tolerance, understanding, humility, kindness, empathy,
generosity, and compassion. This same fight is going on inside you, inside
every other person too."
The grandson then asked: "Which wolf will win?" The old man replied simply: "The one you
feed." - Anon.
Canadian examples of institutional violence: (We don't want to give the impression that Canadians extremely violent. We just haven't gotten around

Special note for survivors with memories of childhood ritual abuse:
Many tens of thousands of North Americans have recovered memories of Satanic
Ritual Abuse (SRA) during
therapy sessions or through self-hypnosis -- mainly during the 1980s and early
1990s. Subsequent investigations have shown that the vast majoirty of such memories were iatrogenic in nature. That is, they were created during therapy and unrelated to real events. But, we are trying to locate a person with SRA
memories that have always been present since the abuse occurred. If you are one, please send us an Email. We will keep your information in strictest confidence. (We have had this message in
place for over 25 years (since 1995-AUG, during the early years of the Internet) with only one response to date.)
It includes data on "69 mass shootings,
172 mass shooters, over 50 years of data, and nearly 200 variables." The vast majority of states have had one or more mass shootings. Exceptions are New Mexico, and two groups of contiguous or nearly contiguous states:
Vermont and Maine in New England.
Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, North Dakota, South Dakota, in the mid-West.
