I would love to say that I am a “good” American and I celebrate the discovery of our great land but this is how I feel about this day in history :
Columbus didn’t discover America. Most of the things we think about him and his journey are wrong. In fact, he wasn’t really a stand up guy and in my opinion doesn’t deserve being celebrated. Maybe instead of celebrating Columbus Day, we should spend this day honoring the millions of people that were killed or suffered from his actions. Columbus Day should be a dark day in our history but instead we make it a National Holiday.
Just in case you needed another reason to feel disenchanted today, remember that we should be praying for the thousands of people still out of work today:
