Excellent points in your post! Many of us are here because our grandparents or parents left oppression in the countries they emigrated from to come to America. It's pointless to live in the past, since it can't be changed. We should all be trying to look toward a better future for all of us in the here and now. We've managed to build a great country that is the envy of the world, and I'd hate to see it dismantled by those who carry a grudge against those of us who had nothing to do with what happened several hundred years ago!
And, where have you been, my friend? I was ready to send the dogs to find you. Are you in the Land of Smiles? I've missed you!
