Reconsider Columbus Day  

This video seems to be making its rounds in the blogosphere on what has been deemed as "Columbus Day," a day to honor a man who deserves no honoring.

It is time to reconsider Columbus Day.

Teachers who are struggling with how to address Columbus Day in the classroom can order a guide from Or, if you're simply a concerned citizen who is sick of being forced to celebrate a man who committed heinous crimes, you can sign this online petition calling for a holiday to honor Native Americans instead of Columbus. You can also sign the petition calling for the abandonment of plans to build a Columbus monument in Puerto Rico.

What next?

    I signed this petition - I'm glad so many people are willing to stand up for what is right.

    I tried to explain this to one of my friends and she doesn't understand at all. What hurts me most is that not only will she not have a reasonable debate about it - she dismisses everything political from me as liberal jargon.

    And she is not even 20 years old yet.
