132 Years Ago, Today...

Wednesday, June 25, 2008



History was made. No matter your opinion about General Custer, and the Little Big Horn, it happened, and we should honor those brave, albeit frightened, soldiers and Indians who both fought for what they believed in.

We cannot ignore that it happened, nor should we sanitize it with political correctness across a century plus 32 years , as the bad white guys infringing on the Native American Indian's land, for to do so denigrates the memory of all involved.

Ozaob,

Thank you for your comment. I am a fervent believer that we should not judge the past according to the present.

The past is, for lack of a better term, what it is, and we should not, nor ever, attempt to place modern day morals on it.

To do so is disingenuous at best, dishonest at worst.

Perhaps just as catastrophic, what happened and where, 63 years ago today.......

The year was 1945 and the place was San Francisco. As you said, the past is left to stand on its own merits or lack thereof. It is what it is.

One week to the day after Okinawa was captured, fifty sovereign nations signed, what has developed into what is arguably one of the worst paragons, mankind has yet to achieve on such a grand scale. If only what I presume had been the intended virtue, could have survived,.....

The fact that it took place where it did and the speed of destruction is remarkable. That it is now but an apparition of what I believe was a well-intentioned plan, has drifted so far astray with the relative speed in which it has, I think requires whole armies of saboteurs!

The United Nations Charter, manifestation of epic proportions, begs for its own destruction.
