Historical Fiction

We are extremely thankful for every single item and occurrence in our lives. If we aren’t we should be. For we, as a whole, live in fine homes with adequate food. But we live on the backs of others. Those that settled here 20,000 years ago. Those of 200 years ago.

The same is not true for American Indians, this is a day of mourning for them as Thanksgiving Day was set by Abraham Lincoln to commemorate the mass destruction of Native Tribal villages.
