Today marks the 150th anniversary of the Sand Creek Massacre.  I hope that we will all take a moment to read some of what happened, to reflect on what it meant to us as a nation then and on what this event continues to say about us as a nation today.  Without too much editorializing, I have posted a handful of links below that you can explore.

A petition to have the name of Chivington, CO changed….

My thoughts are with the people that are still feeling the repercussions of this tragedy.  My hope is that by continuing to shine light on this story, more people will gain awareness and work to affect real/lasting change in the lives of all people around the world.

more soon…..
