Special thanks to Maureen at Writing without Paper for sharing the trailer to a documentary that tells the story of the largest mass execution carried out in our country. It is a brutal story from our past, a time when hunger for land overwhelmed our humanity, a true time of madness. It opens with the statistic that the Native American population which was once estimated at 60 million is now down to less than one million. But it isn't a story of blame or revenge but rather a call for healing and reconciliation.
Watching this trailer made me wonder what madness we're playing out now, where we have lost our humanity, what future generations will say about us.
Here's a link to Maureen's post which includes the trailer and more about this story and the journey it prompted.
