Reasons for Celebration

Today is Columbus Day which is NOT a day that I celebrate. I find it hard to celebrate the arrival of genocide onto this continent and that's what followed those three small ships from Europe to our shores. The map below shows just a few of the tribes that existed in the United States at the time Columbus landed. A map depicting today would be vastly different. So, since I don't want to dwell on negatives today, I thought I'd share beauty below the cut. I have stunning pics of a Sunrise, a Rainbow and a Waterfall to share because we all should face this day and week with a positive outlook.
