Remembering Molly

Covid-19 has impacted all of us around the world.  Here in the Southwest the Navajo Nation has experience Covid at it's worst.  Many community members, families, and close sisters and brothers have experienced it first hand.  The losses have been devastating.  Molly was one of them.  She journeyed onto the next life this summer.  

Molly lived in Burnham, NM on the Navajo Nation.  She was a powerful voice with Lucy Willie standing strong and tall against the proposed Desert Rock coal power plant.  The two women were rocks.  Not willing to move or budge until things were set straight.

Working with both of these incredible Navajo women for many years was both an honor and life long experience.  Their words were spoken with truth and integrity.  Molly always listened carefully long before she spoke.  Lucy and Molly are together again.  I know that in my heart.  That thought alone brings a warm smile filled with love and respect to my face.  Thank you my sisters for everything you have done for your families, community, and Mother Earth.  Safe journey.

be strong, be safe, Carlan
