It's the same in any lingo

בַּת-בָּבֶל, הַשְּׁדוּדָה: אַשְׁרֵי שֶׁיְשַׁלֶּם-לָךְ-- אֶת-גְּמוּלֵךְ, שֶׁגָּמַלְתּ לָנוּ
אַשְׁרֵי שֶׁיֹּאחֵז וְנִפֵּץ אֶת-עֹלָלַיִךְ-- אֶל-הַסָּלַע

How can one be compelled to accept slavery? I simply refuse to do the master's bidding. He may torture me, break my bones to atoms and even kill me. He will then have my dead body, not my obedience. Ultimately, therefore, it is I who am the victor and not he, for he has failed in getting me to do what he wanted done. ~ Mahatma Gandhi
If I am not for myself, who will be for me? If I am not for others, what am I? If not now, when? ~ Rav Hillel, Pirke Avot

Hisle SD - 38 households (average of 17 persons per household on Reservation) still snowed in with out power or water.

Lost Dog Community - 5 families snowed in, no power, no water, food situation unknown.

Lacreek Electric Association reports that over 1,000 power distribution poles broken by the storm have been replaced, but dozens more are still down, while repair efforts have been diverted to the some of the main distribution lines still partially inoperative.


It was also reported that the Red Cross presence at Pine Ridge was one person who was rude and left on Saturday.  There has been some help from the National Guard.  No word on whether the Red Cross will return.  Shipments of donated supplies are getting through.  It has been asked that people not send mismatched items; if it is possible to send NEW clothes, please do so.
