The following is an excerpt taken from a movie called "Thunderdome".  It offers some  thoughts about why this work is important to us:

----------------

In the last scene, Savannah is doing "the tell" in the broken English of her tribe,  to what has now become a village full of people who have gathered to live in the  ruins of the city. Her words begin while we are still looking at the city from the  air, and feeling the sense of awe and loss that she and the others in the plane feel  as they see it. Then, as we continue to hear her words, we see the village full of  people sitting on the floor in the shell of one of the city's ruined buildings,  listening to her recite the tell, as she cradles a baby in her lap. Some of the  words she uses are similar to the words she used in the earlier tell at the oasis,  but now she is more mature and she has the story right:

"This you knows: the years travel fast and time after time I done the tell. But this  ain't one body's tell; it's the tell of us all, and you've got to listen it and (re) member, cause what you hears today you gotta tell the newborn tomorrow.

"I's lookin behind us now, into history back. I sees those of us that got the luck  and started the haul for home and I members how it led us here and how we was  heartbroke cause we seen what they once was.

"One look and we knew'd we'd got it straight. Those what had gone before had the  knowin and the doin and things beyond our reckonin, even beyond our dreamin.

"Time counts and keeps countin and we knows now, findin the trick of what's been and  lost ain't no easy ride. But that's our track. We gotta travel it and there ain't  nobody knows wheres it's gonna lead.

"Still, in all, every night we does the tell so that we member who we was and where  we came from.

"But most of all we members the man who finded us, him that came the salvage, and we  lights the city not just for him but for all of 'em that are still out there, cause  we knows there'll come a night when they sees the distant light and they'll be comin  home."

------------

Love,

Christen and John
