Why the Turkey?
With the Native American totems, it is believed that the turkey acts and reacts on behalf of others. This act is not a sense of moralism or guilt, but a deep knowledge that all life is sacred. The Turkey is the symbol of a transcended self.
In turn, Benjamin Franklin believed the turkey was respectable, and that it could have been honored as the national bird. He is, though a little vain & silly, a Bird of Courage that while working for his food, will not hesitate to protect what is his.
The Turkey reminds us that while life is hard going at it alone, acting and reacting on the behalf of others can bring us closer as a community. We have decided to work together to take on a different route towards life. Together, we have the common denominator, in that we have the passion to consistently improve ourselves and those around us. Working together, we have created a lifestyle that has helped to experience life in more efficient ways.
