I love the United States despite its errors like My Lai and Abu Ghraib. My church book group is presently reading ”An Indigenous History of the United States” by Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz. Until I read this book, I hadn’t realized what a colonial power we have been and the extent of over a century of genocide toward indigenous people. While it is heavy reading, I recommend this book. When we know better, we can do better.
