When you think of Thanksgiving you may recall the day in history when John Winthrop and his colonial volunteers murdered more than 700 men, women and children of the Pequot Indians and then enslaved the survivors, forcing them to teach the colonials how to grow crops to feed themselves...or, maybe not. Mainstream America hasn't embraced these truths and has instead opted for a more lighthearted day of giving thanks, plentiful feasts, football and discount shopping.
While I enjoy Thanksgiving so much for the time I get with my family and friends, I think it's important to remember where we came from and give thanks to those who helped us get to where we are today. So, thank you to the Indians who bestowed their knowledge and helped us survive. Without your wisdom and sacrifice we possibly wouldn't be here. Then again, maybe the corn industry wouldn't be monopolizing our resources...but that's a discussion for another time. Happy Give Thanks to the Indians Day, Happy Thanksgiving - enjoy your turkey and these wallpapers.
