"THE STORY is more than a reminder of humanity or a teacher of tribal ways. It is a thing that people hunger after. Need to remain alive. Like a natural portion of fresh water, clean air, good food. If the American air has gone strange, the water turned murky and the food become filled with unnatural additives, can you imaging how unhealthy the story told has become?"
