Because I’ve been to the mountaintop
I know it’s extremely hard for most of us to realize, accept and cope with the fact that this great nation of ours was created through invasion and genocide of the native inhabitants. It’s pretty obvious that it’s water under the bridge. What’s been done can’t really be undone; however it seems to me that if we recognized this truth, considered what it really means and honored those who died, it might really change the landscape of the political environment in this country. It might really change how we view ourselves and the rest of the world and, most importantly, how we view and treat our fellow man.
Well, that’s what I think.
