My interest in this message board comes from my quest to learn as much as I can about Sitting Bull and Red Cloud. This is why: Several years ago (2002), I was called for jury duty in my county. I was selected to sit on the jury for a very difficult case. I had apprehensions, as I had spent the last 30 years of my life seeking to be able to judge no man (or woman), and now I was asked to do just that. After the first night of little or no sleep, I had a very vivid dream. In the dream, I saw a campfire in the distance. I walked toward the fire, and as I approached the campfire two of the men sitting in the group around the fire stood and walked toward me. Each man embraced me and said "It's going to be okay. You'll do the right thing." I felt such a feeling of comfort, that I still feel today when I think about the dream. While the men never said in the dream who they were, when I woke, I knew that it was Sitting Bull and Red Cloud. I got out of bed and went directly to my computer to look up their pictures. It confirmed it. I'm not sure what the dream meant or why I had it, but I do know that after that, I was very comfortable in my role as a juror. The dream has stayed with me these past 8 years, and while I usually don't give too much thought to my dreams, for some reason I still feel very connected to these two men. I am here to learn more.
