well I am of Native American descent and I do not feel it is a good day.
I think of the millions of lives slaughtered directly and indirectly and am not thankful.
I think of the lands stolen and am not thankful.
I think of the cultures and languages lost and am not thankful.
I think of the deceit and lies and am not thankful.
So each bite of your feasts is an insult to all the lives lost.
every time you say -happy thanksgiving- it is an insult and slap in the face to the chidren forced from their homes and into a culture that spit on them and tortured them.
yes this is my point of view but it is based on truth
So enjoy your meal and your happy times and I will mourn the dead
and if you think I am insulting you and your traditions... well I can live with that
after all, I have learned history and do not deny it
and I will not pretend and celebrate anything that is based on murder, deceit and greed.
meanwhile, every other day but this one, I will be thankful to God for every blessing he given me.
