    Thank you for your comment, but I must admit to you & others that I am in no way qualified to do a diary on this subject which as you say spans centuries.
    It would take more years than I have left to produce a worthy diary.
    I had alluded to that in my comment & showed an example of the kind of diary I`m familiar with.
    Besides all of that, there should be an emotional connection involved that I do not have, that being that I`m not native to this country.
    My connection is more of personal feelings about how humans go to great lengths to inflict harm on others.

    I know my limitations quite well, though one of them is not to stifle my learning. I`m just a curious man.

    My tenure here does not reflect on my knowledge of an issue.
    A person with a PHD on the subject who registered here tomorrow would know a million times more than I on the subject.
    Thank you though for suggesting it.
    My head almost started to swell up.
    I said, "almost".
    Good evening & try to stay warm.

    I`m already against the next war.

      gained insight that would be interesting to those of us who believe in shining light on this type of history -- and being reminded of it often, then even a non-comprehensive, even short diary would be welcome. Not everyone here has to be an expert or thorough. It would even be interesting to hear of your exploration as you note in the context of Thanksgiving's history, and what you found on that journey.

      No PhD needed!
