The Truth About Thanksgiving Day & Why I Do Not Celebrate American Holliday They Call Thanksgiving
Most schools in America try to tell that Thanksgiving is a holiday to celebrate and be thankful for the friendship with the Indians. We were not their friends if you look through real history and facts. The events that took place show that we in fact slaughtered them to take over their lands. Much like we have done to many ever since. People think of the Pilgrims and Indians sitting down to a big feast and celebrating. It seems that did happen only one time! The real truth about Thanksgiving is below for those that care to read on.
The real story of
Thanksgiving began in 1614 when a band of English
explorers sailed home to England with a ship full of Patuxet
Indians bound for slavery. They left a gift
called smallpox for the remaining
Indians. That virtually wiped out those who had escaped
the explorers. When the
Pilgrims arrived in Massachusetts Bay they found only one living
Patuxet Indian. The Indians name was
Squanto. He not
only survived slavery in England but
he also knew their language. Squanto
taught the pilgrims to grow corn and
to fish. Squanto negotiated a peace
treaty between the Pilgrims and the Wampanoag Nation. At the end
of their first year, the Pilgrims held a great feast honoring
Squanto and the Wampanoags.
The Indians were not violent savage people as they would make you think in a lot of American History books and schools. The Indians were those that believed in Nature and protection of animals and other people. The Indians were amazing in many ways. They did not kill just to be killing or kill for lands and power as the usa does. The Indians were brave warriors that fought hard to try to keep their families safe and worked together to share and provide food, clothing and shelter to each other.
Now maybe we see why some more peaceful countries do not celebrate this day. I myself am always sad on Thanksgiving when I think of what has been done and wonder what it would have been like if not for the sad slaughter of the beautiful Indians. Every Thanksgiving you will find Leigh Girl doing a live Peace Paint in memory of the Indians that were slaughtered then and through history. This is a sad event and her way of saying that she is sorry for what injustice has been done in the past to such beautiful people. You can find her website at www.facepaint.ws if you wish to book mark that and get in to see this yearly event.
Now our America has people killing each other for money and no reasons at all on a daily basis. People stealing from each other, homeless people that few seem to try to really help. The world is nothing like it should be and was. The usa takes over lands from others and steals their resources still while telling lies and spreading american hate. Is this what we really have become and really want to show our children. Look at your news and media then look to other countries and translate their news. Find the facts on everything before you judge people or agree with slaughter of people anywhere. The USA has taken many lives for no reason and it breaks my heart and gives me great shame to say that I am of the USA. Still to this day I can not stand to see their flags fly for it breaks my heart and reminds me of past and present events.
THANKSGIVING one of the sick American Holidays or did you look up American Holiday Thanksgiving? Obviously Thanksgiving is an American thing. What other country would celebrate the mass murder of people to take over lands. Of course Thanksgiving is so American and a true day of sorrow and time to remember the Indians.
