PostSubject: Thanksgiving a Day of Thanks   Thu Nov 22, 2012 6:33 pm

HAPPY THANKSGIVING To All, Smile


We are a diverse international group with many different traditions.


In the USA there is one tradition that just about shuts this country down. Thanksgiving. It is in remembrance of a feast that the native Wampanoag Americans Indians celebrated with the Starving Pilgrims from England in there first year in America. This has become a Day of Thanks to that Nation of Indians. The story goes that the Indians on a late November day walked into the starving Pilgrim settlement with food and sat down with the Pilgrims for a feast.


There are many stories about various Indian Nations in America; this is one of the good ones. Most stories by the hands of my forefathers are tragic for our Native Americans. This brings me to my point in sharing this with you all. We the membership are a group of men from many different nations and have found a way to get along. As I celebrate with my family today I wish the best for all of you.

It is easy to be a good winner, only in defeat lays the true test of sportsmanship.

Sorry I missed this one John...I put a thanksgiving message up on the day for our USA brothers. But somehow missed this discussion, I had recently seen "The New World". A strange movie on many counts, but it did seem to portray the story of thanksgiving in it....I dont know I may have my wires crossed, but it did seem to be about that.

Westerners during this whole period of conquest and exploration and colonialism, led to the death of many natives from all 4 corners of the globe...such is the nature of conquest. Here in Australia we killed them (Aboriginies) by the thousands, when I say "we", I mean the British, then, in the years that followed, the first generation of white Australians. The Aboriginies in Tasmania were all but wiped out, it is said that just one survived the slaughter. Per capita I would have to say its the closest thing to full genocide of a race of people I have ever read about. Rivaling the attempted slaughter of the Jews in 1939-45 or Pol Pots attempted genocide of the Cambodians in the 70's.

An interesting fact is that the South African government is said to have moulded its first model of Apartheid (responsible for countless horrors, and crimes against humanity), was taken from...you guessed it ...the Australian model of how we handled and treated the Native Australians (Aboriginies) in our country.

I quess what Im trying to say Johnny, is that we all have these blots on our otherwise glorious histories, it doesnt mean that white people today are barbaric now, I think we have learned alot from all we have done wrong in the past and have grown alot since. And like yourself John am proud of all aspects of my country from the Native Australians to our proud history as a Commonwealth Nation.

Happy Thanksgiving United States, God knows we all have plenty to be thankful for.

Dan Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Dan,
You captured my thoughts perfectly.
We in the US celberate an act of kindness, and never mention the Trail of Tears. Things like this still goe on around the world. As soon as one society has it figured out another comes along that has to learn. Crying or Very sad Mad

Cant wait for the races!!!!!!!!! Very Happy Very Happy cheers
John
