I am so thankful for all the amazing friends I've made throughout the blogosphere. I'm thankful for the ability to view the world through your words and through your photos. I am thankful that I am free to keep this blog and live my life basically as I choose.
Today I hope people will take a moment to view Thanksgiving through the eyes of the Native Americans and not the Pilgrims.
The Native people who were displaced from their homes and massacred all in the name of Manifest Destiny and "religious freedom".
While I always take time to count my blessings and give thanks on this "holiday" I also try to think honestly about the Native people of this beautiful country and remember them today in my thoughts and prayers. I hope you will, too.
(Clearly I did not take these photos. I found them via Google Images and they are of the Salish & Kootenai tribes.)
