Wow! This is such a shocking, well written, clearly researched and documented article. Thank you Jessie for sharing your wisdom and for speaking up amidst the denial and opposition to the truth. I cannot fathom the horror of the removal of these children from their families and the decimation of their culture. We can not erase the fact that it happened, but we can certainly admit that it did and at least try to make amends for the acts of our predecessors.
This piece was beautiful. Sad and funny and uplifting and tragic all at the same time. Thank you.
