Hello Members and Friends,

Oh My Goodness! The controversy never ends! Over yet another Holiday! While my Heritage is Norwegian and Danish, I am very happy that history itself is now telling the truth, that MY Viking ancestors truly "sailed the ocean blue" prior to Columbus. But they get NO Holiday, now discovery goes to the Indigenous people...

Here is an excerpt from CNN

CNN)By now, you probably know Christopher Columbus didn't discover America. He wasn't even the first European to do it.

Somehow, the 15th-century Italian explorer still got his own national holiday. But more cities and states are scrapping Columbus Day to honor the people who were here first -- and who suffered greatly after Columbus' arrival.
Just this year, at least a dozen US cities -- including San Francisco and Cincinnati -- decided to stop observing Columbus Day and will instead celebrate Indigenous Peoples Day on Monday.
Seriously Yes, the Indigeious People, whom we used to call Native Indians, now of course we refer to them as Indigenous People deserve to be recognized as the TRUE Settlers of this land. Is a settler different from a discovery? Because think about all the concurring that was done, in horrible wars, destroyed the indigenous people, but the lands themselves are named for the Conquerors...
Back to my Ancestors what about The Vikings- they did Great Things?
This kinds of stuff makes me go ...HHHMMMM?
