Remember back to the 1970’s and the Keep America Beautiful project? The project was centered on “No Littering” recycling and community beautification.
Old Iron Eyes Cody stood at the side of the road and a single tear rolled down his face. He was nicknamed “The Crying Indian.”
I am sure if he were still alive..he would be sobbing if he walked down this road.
His brothers are more into burning things up than cleaning them up.
Sometimes “evil spirits” must be burned up.
Sometimes they go off of the reservation and start fires.
We finally got enough moisture so that it is more difficult to start fires. It is an every spring occurrence. The BIA and the DNR have extra units in the area for the worst of it..but the Local Volunteer Fire Department still gets it’s share of calls ..day and night.
I do not begin to understand what motivates someone to start fires. No one is ever caught..no one is ever charged with arson. During times of “no fires” you begin to wonder who is in jail..and when they will be getting out:(
