Day of Mourning: October 12

October 12: A day of mourning at my house for our ancestors who were massacred, for our ancestors who massacred them, and for our ancestors brought in as slaves to take their place. May they rest in unconditional love and may we learn to be better from their experiences. – Ingrid

Peeking my head in from all of the homeschool preparation I’ve been doing to mention how our family considers Columbus Day. We try to convey the whole story and most importantly we try to point out the imperialism taking place in the world today and what we as a people can do about it.

We are also going to get our hands on The Canary Effect documentary.
