This Native American brief moral story is a "must-read", a constant reminder of hope how we live our lives from day to day:An elder Native American Cherokee was teaching his grandchildren about life. He said to them, "A fight is going on inside me...it is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves. One wolf represents fear, anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, pride and superiority. The otehr wolf stands for joy, peace, love, sharing, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, friendship, empathy, generosity, truth and compassion. This same fight is going on inside of you and every other person too." They thought about this for a minute and then one child asked his grandfather, "Which wolf will win?" The elder Cherokee simply replied, "The one I feed."
