something to consider…

By in Life

I’m going to step away from my home and my life for a moment to post this video from Reconsider Columbus Day.

It is very sad to me that after the horrible treatment of Native Americans that there is no national holiday in the U.S. to honor their culture and memorialize the millions of Native Americans who lost their lives in the settling of this country. Remember, when Columbus “discovered” this country it wasn’t empty. There was a whole race of people who had been living their lives here and were subsequently stripped of their land, their culture and for many their lives. They should be honored for their endurance under such vicious treatment.
