|Here are some thoughts from Elena, copied from a different thread:
I used to love tops when I was a kid. I was probably the only girl around who loved them. I still think they are cool. I was a marble nut too. I never would play marbles with boys though because I didn't want to risk losing them. My grandkids have those bands and can tell me where each one came from. I don't understand the craze either but the kids love them. One of these days they will go the way of pet rocks and other crazes we didn't understand like dressed up trolls and on and on. At least the bands are cheap and easy on the purse so parents and grandparents should be proud of that fact. Speaking of crazes, yo yos, hula hoops and jacks were around for a long time too. Guess they will come back strong eventually also. Seen anyone using a loop of string to make creations like crow's foot and cup and saucer and on both hands lately? Then there are shadow pictures on the wall. I see those in fancy styles online in videos these days. We used to love doing that by casting shadows on the wall.
Look and listen for the welfare of the whole people and have always in view not only the present but also the coming generations, even those whose faces are yet beneath the surface of the ground -- the unborn of the future Nation. The Constitution of the Iroquois Nations.
