Clyde List Editorial: Thanksgiving Day 2009

The First Thanksgiving

Library of Congress, Washington, D.C.
NOTE: The Sherwood Historical Society does not endorse Clyde's Comments.

Thanksgiving is the celebration of a very positive historical incident that happened between some white people and the Native Americans a long, long time ago. But there was a lot more than that to celebrate. Please go to:
Forgotten Founders.
Spend some time imagining what America might been like if only the story had not taken such a desperately wrong turn. The page will make you very angry. Sorry to spoil your holiday! Happy Thanksgiving anyway.

In retrospect, the Native Americans now have little to be thankful for. However, for the sake of the European immigrants, both now and then, there is much to be thankful for, and in many ways it is a humbling holiday. The symbols are a part of the historic story which represent exactly what they are as opposed to other holidays where the icons are more symbolic than tangible. We eat a game bird with food of the forest forage: nuts and berries. May we ever observe these humble beginnings. --John Brown
