Native Americans' Day (aka Columbus Day) 2017


Like slave-owners Washington and Jefferson, Christopher Columbus was a person of his times.
Moreover, like all persons of all times, Columbus possessed qualities to admire, and qualities to condemn.
In the century following Columbus' arrival in the Americas, 95% of the 70 million Native Americans were either killer by Europeans, or died from diseases brought by the Europeans.

Security is mostly a superstition.
It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it.
Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure.
Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.
- Helen Keller

Unless you try to do something beyond what you have already mastered,
you will never grow.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

The biggest adventure you can take is to live the life of your dreams.
- Oprah Winfrey

Be a Columbus to whole new continents and worlds within you,
opening new channels, not of trade, but of thought.
- Henry David Thoreau
