I just watched Hidden America: Children of the Plains on ABC's 20/20 with Diane Sawyer. This was touching, informative, monumental and unexpected-mainly because it was shown on mainstream media.

When I saw the previews for it, I made sure to watch it because rarely do you see or hear anything concerning American Indians today, unless it's in regards to some Hollywood western movie. I've been out of high school for five years, and remember that their was little relevance to America's first inhabitants. I learned that if you really want to learn something, then read as much as you can, investigate for yourself, and don't go half-cocked based off of what someone else has said. American history books are loaded with misconceptions, but that's another story.

You should read Abagond's post here.

It's vital to recognize that we are all a part of a common circle; we share this Earth having more similarities than differences. No matter who you are, or where you come from, just take the time out to learn from and help someone else. We all need someone to pull us up in times of need and laugh with in times of joy.
