Historical note from Dec. 29, 1860:

After the Seventh Cavalry had murdered almost 300 men, women, and children beneath a white flag of truce at Wounded Knee Creek, toward evening some of the wounded and dying were taken to a makeshift hospital in the Pine Ridge Episcopal Church. Over the pulpit was a Christmas banner that read:

Peace on Earth, Good Will to Men.

You can read more about the barbaric carnage at the link, including the medals given to the soldiers. It may move you to tears.

  3. i assume that you mean that the Twitter images and signs should be broadcast worldwide? listening…listening…

    ah: for christmas we’d get what we deserve. hmmm. i guess ‘chickens coming home to roost’ may be what we collectively deserve, but my hope is that we can help stop it all before then. domestically, we do not deserve it, i hope, as so many re fighting back now, saying: ThisStopsToday! enough for a tipping point to nonviolent revolution? maybe, maybe not.
