is the melting pot of the Nations of the World.
We have the advantage of learning to understand
and to love the unique styles of thinking and
living, that people, from different cultures and
religions, have grown up with. What we have is
a great opportunity to show each other respect
for our differences. The test is to enjoy each
other for our different opinions and our different
styles of living. GENTLE BREEZE Carrying the Scent
of Flowers, is about the Spirit of America. The
Spirit of America embedded in the land itself,
embedded in the souls of the people themselves,
embedded in the Native Americans from whom we
can learn respect for the earth and her peoples.
These little books, GENTLE BREEZE and soon to
follow RUNNING WATER will act as a mentor, to
bring out the Spirit of America in you, the reader.
Here in this book you will read questions about
life. What questions do you have in your heart?

Carrying the Scent of Flowers
By Paulette Renee Broqueville
is it, when one only sees the Faults of Others"
then came a brave, tired of complaints, and he asked,
"What is it when one sees, only the faults of others?"
and Grandmother answered him saying, "Does not
a swan think itself a young duckling when it is raised
with ducks? Does not a man think himself to be what
other men are? Does not a son want to be like his father
and a daughter want to be like her mother? We all learn
how to be, from those who surround us. When we are children
we are too busy to notice the faults of others, but
when we grow up, some, look with a critical eye at the
people. Why is this so? Is not a child, wanting only
of happiness, more concerned with what he does, than
with what others are doing? The child's
little life is so rich and so full, that he does not
have time to judge another's life. The parents must
help the child grow up in wisdom, without losing the
child within the man. He who sees only what he believes
to be a fault within the people, is he who has learned
to see the faults, and to complain about them. The parents
of such a man have taught him to still the child within
his heart, by their example of complaints. And so it
goes, that when the child is silenced within the man,
that his life stops, and all he can do is watch the
lives of other men and women."
