What is Life?
In the wise words of Crowfoot Blackfoot Warrior Chief from the 1800’s - “From nowhere we came; into nowhere we go. What is life? It is the flash of a firefly in the night. It is the breath of a buffalo in the wintertime. It is the little shadow which runs across the grass and loses itself in the sunset.”
