Our Winter Count - Inspiration For Educators From the Lakota Sioux
By Todd R. Nelson

If you drew last year’s highlights on an animal hide, like the Lakota Sioux, what would they look like? They probably didn’t come in a shopping cart.

We have entered the season of counts. On the one hand, it is the count of the Advent calendar; on the other, the soulless countdown of spending days until Christmas, and the turn of the calendar year at New Year’s. We are preoccupied with enumerating the passage of time, expense, and our accomplishments connected mostly to consumption and the year’s impending expiration. Another fiscal year draws to an end, and we prepare for the reckoning with the tax man - the annual bean count.

Thanksgiving asks us, "How have we been fortunate?" and New Year’s Day, "How will I make good fortune in the future?" If there is sincerity and humility attached, they are questions that also draw us out of ourselves to think of others: How have I, or how will I, help others share in the benefits that abound?
