Cherokee Speaks

At the rising sun they came,

driving us from our homeland.

Miles and miles our people limped.

The weakened ones fell.



For the "Miles" contest

    A sad bit of American history that most Americans choose to forget - but, should not. We so often condem others for doing what we have done in our not too distant past. This is a nice, simple and compelling reminder of a wrong we should right. Nicely done. Joe
