Anniversary of a massacre...

December 29, 1890.  Wounded knee.


When the US Government wants something, even if it belongs to you, they will take it.  They will kill you, if necessary, but they will have what they want. 

My wife and I traveled to South Dakota last spring.  We visited these places where the US Government murdered people in order to get what they wanted.  Haunted places.

Of course, it couldn't happen here.  Not in America.  Not today.  (I suspect that Randy Weaver and David Koresh would disagree...)

Read the story.  It is just one of many.  Ask yourself how you would feel if someone came in and stole your land, moved you to a place that was convenient for them, and stripped you of your culture...  How would you respond?  How will you respond?

A spooky place I never felt right there.

I'm sure it's haunted. Felt the same way at Dachau.
