Indians once roamed this soil

Great and hardy pioneers dug their faces in the dirt

In sweat and toil

Waste not for want this hallowed mirth

Giants in the earth!

Author‘s Note: Inspired by Rolvaag’s Giants in the Earth in my high school days. it was a book about the perils the pioneers braved to settle America. How does one begin to measure the value-added to life from reading?
