32. My land feeds me
I have worked hard on it (though you can't tell.) It's where I have planted things and raised animals. It's my haven.

BUT, if the Cherokee won the right to have it back I would sell it back to them. Nevertheless, there is a part of me that would resent giving up all that I'd worked for. If I had a huge home I'd birthed babies in and that was built by some ancestor, I'd really be upset.

When Israel was re-created, it seemed nobody gave a freaking second's thought to the long-term consequences of displacing people and forcing them to like it.
