A friend sent the following old story in email:
And here is a somewhat darker, more historical look at Thanksgiving in the colonies. Thank God for the slaughter of 700 men, women and children.A CHEROKEE INDIAN STORY DESCRIBES IT THIS WAY:
MY SON, THERE IS FIGHT BETWEEN TWO WOLVES INSIDE US. ONE IS EVIL. IT IS ANGER, ENVY, JEALOUSY, GREED, ARROGANCE, SELF-PITY, RESENTMENT, INFERIORITY, FALSE PRIDE AND EGO. THE OTHER IS GOOD. IT IS JOY, PEACE, LOVE, HOPE, HUMILITY, EMPATHY, GENEROSITY, TRUTH, COMPASSION, AND FAITH.
THE GRANDSON LOOKED AT HIS GRANDFATHER WITH FEAR IN HIS EYES AND ASKED, WHICH WOLF WILL WIN?
