|O’Brien Each Day in the Year of the Fire Dog 168|
July 15 is the birthday of a great painter, Rembrandt. It is also the anniversary of the first Buddhist Temple in the US, 1904, in Los Angeles. Meanwhile on that day in 1978 approximately 2000 Native Americans and their supporters participated in the “Longest Walk” from San Francisco. They entered Washington DC after a 5 month cross country walk to protest bills in Congress that limited Native Rights. About 20 people walked the entire way.
