Columbus Day

Every year I teach my school aged children about Columbus

How he was not the one to discover America first, the Native Americans were here first. I tell them the truth, how Columbus apparently could not read a map, and decided to wipe out a lot of natives when he landed.

I do not give credit where credit is not due, and Columbus was not the first to discover the Americas.

There are a lot of historical innacuracies regarding Columbus. He was not a very nice man...

 My mom taught me the same thing. My first year of school, I argued with the teacher when she told us he did.

Yup. We've already talked about it a bit but I'm sure we will discuss it more tomorrow. My kids are a bit young so they don't get it all but we talk about it.
