The Children of Happiness

Interestingly, in Daughters of Copper Woman, a re-telling of ancient stories from the native people of Vancouver Island by Anne Cameron, there is one story titled The Children of Happiness.  Whether this story is related in meaning to the story related in the previous entry here by Janet Spotted Eagle, I do not know, but at the end of the story are these words:

They are to be cherished and protected,

even at the risk of your life.

They will know sadness, but will overcome it.

They will know alienation

for they see past and through this reality.

They will Endure where others cannot.

They will Survive where others cannot.

They know love even when it is not shown to them.


They spend their lives trying to Communicate

the love they know.
