“In our prophecies it is told that we are now at the crossroads: Either unite spiritually as a Global Nation, or be faced with chaos, disasters, diseases, and tears from our relatives' eyes.
“We are the only species that is destroying the Source of Life, meaning Mother Earth, in the name of power, mineral resources, and ownership of land, using chemical and methods of warfare that are doing irreversible damage. Mother Earth is becoming tired and cannot sustain any more impacts of war."

Day 120 – Friday, October 20, 1995 - I had a brief phone conversation with Regula (Rella) Vellacott, who has flown from her home in Switzerland to be with the walk in Oklahoma. This is her second extended visit to be part of our pilgrimage.
Rella told me that in her view the group is getting better. "They see the problem there with Tom," she said, and Tom keeps away from the group."
“It's a big bag of problems," she said. "Tom is aware of what he did to the group, but the group has not confronted him as one. The incident with Brianna was swept under the carpet. But it will come up again. I’m sure of that. There is no way to pretend that everything is fine. There is no way to escape the real issues. They will come up again sooner or later."
The Sunbow 5 base camp will be moving again. This time camp is moving onward 50 miles west to the grounds of the Catholic Mission in Seminole, Oklahoma.
