Should we be celebrating the massacre of fellow human beings - NO!

 It's a USA holiday called Thanksgiving. I find it repulsive. 

Should we really be celebrating the massacre of fellow humans. No? We should not.

I know, perspective is everything. So let's change our mindset, right? Let's say this day is actually about gratitude.

To me, that is an act of selfishness and unkindness. You're refocusing the holiday that was originally about wiping out populations of people - to be positive. It's not right. It's about you. It's about you wanting a holiday.

It's not about recognizing that wrong was done and making it right. 

If we were being unselfish and kind - we would walk away from this holiday entirely. Not to assuage ancestral guilt but to avoid the appearance that we are okay with what happened. Anyone with a conscience is not okay with that. 

This year I participated in the feast, sort of. 

Next year I want to do something entirely different.
