Musings on Mother’s Day

By Yvonne Sam

The dictionary definition of mother is concise: “A woman in relation to her child or children.” In my opinion this definition is somewhat lacking as mothers are so much more. Actually, there may not be another word with deeper, more copious connotations in the English language than “mother.”

Agatha Christie, the English novelist, makes no mystery of the bond between mother and child: “A mother’s love for her child is like nothing else in the world. It knows no law, no pity; it dates all things and crushes down remorselessly all that stands in its path.”         Continue reading

Hidden History: The Prehistoric American Civilizations Destroyed by European Settlers

The Most Revolutionary Act

America Before Columbus

Directed by Cristina Trebbi (2009)

Film Review

Although this documentary acknowledges the arrival of Europeans diminished the Native American population by 90%, it omits any mention of the massacres, enslavement or land expropriation that were the primary cause of their demise. For some odd reason, it makes it appear as if they died out due to accidental exposure to small pox, measles and influenza and European pigs that destroyed their crops.

That being said, the film gives a reasonable depiction of the great civilizations along the Mississippi River and in Central and South America that were destroyed by Europeans. It also accurately portrays how the introduction of corn and potatoes to Europe was far more important than New World gold and silver in the rise of capitalism and the flowering of European civilization.
