A Native elder walks slowly down the path with his young grandson. The two walk in silence. After a time the elder says. “Grandson there are two wolves fighting in my heart. One wolf is angry and vindictive and wishes to hurt others. The other wolf is peaceful, joyful, and loving.” Hearing the words of his grandfather the grandson is filled with fear. With a tremor in his voice he asks, “Grandfather, which wolf will win the battle of your heart?” The wise elder replies, “The one I feed."
