Author Notes

           Our children are paying the price for our education. This poem references the Battle at the Little Big Horn with the plight our children are experiencing today. Like the Sioux nation (who won this last battle against Manifest Destiny and for the survival of their culture), our children are battling to keep the nurturing, education, and protection of a society moving from an industrial heritage to the post-industrial heritage of the information age. With the nuclear family torn between work and family life values, the child is struggling to survive.
