Ceremony (text only) by L. M. Silko - Leslie Marmon Silko

She shook her head slowly.  "They are afraid, Tayo.  They feel something happening, they can see something happening around them.  Indians or Mexicans or whites -- most people are afraid of change.  They think that if their children have the same color of skin, the same color of eyes, that nothing is changing."  She laughed softly.  "They are fools.  They blame us, the ones who look different.  That way they don't have to think about what has happened inside themselves."
