Hail Maine!

Today as head out a day ahead of the DC40 Prayer Initiative and look to send positive energy to the great state of MAINE! If you'd like to join the conversation head over to the Facebook group called "What Makes Your State Great". Each day we're adding positive thoughts, comments, photos and stories around each state that the Dominionists have targeted for their directive to change our country from a place where we all can worship as we see fit, to a place where only Judeo Christian beliefs are accepted and codified.

As always my facts come from 50states.com.

Now let's get rolling...

Hail Maine!

Maine is the only state that shares its border with only one other state. Maine is the only state in the United States whose name has one syllable.

The White Mountain National Forest covers nearly 800,000 acres, the forest covers a landscape ranging from hardwood forests to the largest alpine area east of the Rocky Mountains. Maine lies farther northeast than any other state. Maine contains 542,629 acres of state and national parks.

Approximately 40 millions pounds (nearly 90 percent) of the nation's lobster supply is caught off the coast of Maine. Maine produces 99% of all the blueberries in the country making it the single largest producer of blueberries in the United States.

Maine has a long list of notable residents. For example the King family, Stephen, Tabitha and their son Owen are all residents of Bangor.

Of course what comment about Stephen King would be complete with out a picture of the house!

The original inhabitants of Maine are:

The Maliseet tribe
The Passamaquoddy/Wabanaki tribe
The Abenaki tribe
The Penobscot Indians

I found a great website with a time line of Native American history here.

I also found this video about the Wabanaki people of Maine. For more information on the Wabanaki People visit their website.

Learning from the mistakes of the past, will help us avoid those in the future. Taking away the freedoms and cultures of others is something that destroys both cultures. Each group should be allowed to live and worship as they believe. I don't want more rights than you, I just want the same rights as you.

Sending love and protection to the great state of Maine!

Namaste & Blessed Be
