A terrible anniversary

Never Forget

Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee
Today is the 125th anniversary of the massacre at Wounded Knee in South Dakota.

I read Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee as an assignment in high school and then I read it again on my own a few years after college. It’s heart-wrenching and awful, and certainly one of the most important pieces of American literature ever printed. If you haven’t ever read it, you should make it a priority.
