Joshua’s Recent Updates

“when I learned of the festive holiday of Thanksgiving that apparently everybody celebrated. I returned the next day preaching about Native American genocide. “Did you know,” I asked the art teacher, “that Indians to this day are still being driven off of their land? The government took away their forests and meadows and now they want their rocks. For the uranium. So we can make atomic bombs to kill every last woman, man, and child.”
Joshua Safran, Free Spirit: Growing Up On the Road and Off the Grid

“Violence wasn’t a bad thing when it was brandished against the System.”
Joshua Safran, Free Spirit: Growing Up On the Road and Off the Grid

“And popsicles. Not the crappy kind we made in San Francisco by freezing apple juice on a plastic spoon. No, the genuine artificial article, glowing in unnatural colors and brimming with ingredients like FD&C Yellow No. 5 and enough preservatives to embalm a mammoth.”
Joshua Safran, Free Spirit: Growing Up On the Road and Off the Grid
