Adventure: Part 4


“He ends with a question for another day, another hour, who do you believe the least important person is in your universe, why?” (Excerpt from Part 3 by

Gasps and whispers rose from the circle. Strangers turning to each other and saying, ‘well I don’t know,’ some exclaimed people from past relationships, others pointed to people that were ‘undesirable’ in their view, few pointed to other races or colors of skin, while a very few said ‘no one at all.’ With each exclamation the Shaman nodded.
