    It’s common sense, if you think about it. Whenever someone discovers a new land, there’s pretty much always going to be a native population. And since Europeans think they’re superior to everyone and everything, they feel it is their right to, you know…”save” the natives, because OBVIOUSLY they’re savages.

    But, you know…if things hadn’t happened the way they did–and I’m totally not defending them, because it was totally uncool–then we wouldn’t have the country we have today, good or bad.

    Blackcherise- Were writing an essay about him in school (Due thursday) and my social studies teacher gave us a packet on him. The essay has to be 4-5 paragraphs, doubled-spaced, and size 14 typed and printed and she only made 1 exception (it was my friend) because her computer sucks.

    Kate- omg, you’re toatally changing my opinion. i guess it counts to talk to someone in College. Maybe we wouldnt have computers, or TVs or internet or cell phones. All that stuff make up most of my life and i cant imagine myself living without it without me gettin insane. Now i might call him a hero. but im not sure…………

    Yeah…I get into this argument with my best friend all the time. We’ve been best friends for almost 14 years, but we still have to duke it out sometimes. Now, I understand that she doesn’t like the idea of war. She’s from El Salvador, and when she was a baby, there were all kinds of guerrilla bombings going on around her, so…she’s scared out of her mind of thunder, and she doesn’t like the idea of other innocent people being killed in bombs.

    But seriously, without war, the whole history of the world would be different. Yes, people die. Look at the Civil War. Over 500,000 Americans died, but if some people hadn’t fought for what they believed in, we might still have slavery in this country. I mean…half of this country would still be under the impression that Africans/African Americans are less than human.

    Wow, I’m sorry. I get really emotional about this stuff. I get very upset when people disrespect veterans because we owe them so much. All the Americans in Iraq right now…I may not totally agree with what’s going on over there, but to tell other Americans who are fighting for our safety and our freedom, that they are murderers and evil and whatnot…I think it’s terrible. We’re supposed to be United, but we’re tearing ourselves apart.
