Never a Christmas morning, never an old year ends,
but someone thinks of someone;
old days, old times, old friends.

Quote of the Day:
"My attention has been drawn of late to the wickedness of our proceedings as a nation, towards the ignorant and barbarous natives of countries on which we seize. What have we Christians done for them? We have usurped their lands, kidnapped, enslaved, and murdered themselves. Greatest of their crimes is that they sometimes trespass into the lands of their forefathers; and the very greatest of their misfortunes is that they have ever become acquainted with Christians.”
~ Sir Thomas Fowell Buxton (1 April 1786– 19 February 1845)
Interesting to note that even though this quote is over 170 years old, nothing much has changed in the countries invaded and colonised by Europeans.
I came across this quote by watching the old documentary, "Frontier" from 1997, about the disgraceful treatment of the indigenous population of Australia and their treatment at the hands of white authorities and population since colonisation. Most concerning is nothing has changed in the treatment of indigenous population in Australia since the early years of the whites in Australia, nor for that matter for the indigenous populations colonised by Europeans throughout the globe. Sad state affairs that needs to be addressed, if humanity is to ever reach maturity.
"Frontier" can be found via the following YouTube link: https://youtu.be/zQE75wmRgZo
