Massacre at Wounded Knee: A Bloody & Brutal History

Mass grave at Wounded Knee 

 

Every time I sit long enough to think about Wounded Knee, I cry.  There are so many images seared into my mind that make it difficult to comprehend those events, but one stands out above all others…the image of a nursing infant suckling at her mother’s cold body. I keep picturing my daughter…alone, unprotected, hungry. I can’t forget that scene or what I imagine it must feel like to witness…to know that a child’s mother was taken, that a mother was taken from her child.  So many mothers, so many children, so many families…taken.  I will never forget those images…I will never forget that genocide.

I look back on what I’ve read and seen…and I think about my daughter, my husband…and how truly precious they are.

Life is not disposable.  Life is not replaceable. We must never forget it’s value.

    Thank you for remembering this horrible event as I feel that we forget some of these atrocities. The Native Americans have had a terrible history of forced assimilation and genocide. Let's make sure that we all know our history on this so we don't repeat it.
