THE BIG WORLD GATHERING
Come Together In Support Of Life
As he met with audiences in Santa Fe, Mr. Barrios told a story about the
most recent Mayan New Year ceremonies in Guatemala. He said that one
respected Mam elder, who lives all year in a solitary mountain cave,
journeyed to Chichicastenango to speak with the people at the ceremony.
The elder delivered a simple, direct message.
Human beings must come together in support of life.
At present, each person and group is going his or her own way.
There is hope if people
can come together and unite.
Mr. Barrios told his audiences in Santa Fe
that we are at a critical moment of world history. "We are disturbed. We
can't play anymore. Our planet can be renewed or ravaged. Now is the time
to awaken and take action. Everyone is needed. You are not here for no
reason. Everyone who is here now has an important purpose."
