EUROPEAN COLONIZATION OF THE AMERICAS

~being facetious~

What follows are historical facts that occurred when the New World was “colonized” by the Europeans.

This seems to be happening again.

The meme was right on target then and seems to be right on target now … as per someone who is spreading this information in actual time.

You know who I mean.

Until the coming of the Europeans, the New World was free of smallpox, typhus, cholera, and measles. When Cortez came to invade Mexico, he had with him a silent ally more potent than his small Spanish army. That insidious ally was infectious disease, to which Aztecs and other Native Americans had no immunity.

European colonization of the Americas began as early as the 10th century, when Norse sailors explored and settled limited areas on the shores of present-day Greenland and Canada. According to Norse folklore, violent conflicts with the indigenous population ultimately made the Norse abandon those settlements.

Extensive European colonization began in 1492, when a Spanish expedition headed by Genoese Christopher Columbus sailed west to find a new trade route to the Far East but inadvertently found the Americas. European conquest, large-scale exploration, colonization and industrial development soon followed. Columbus’s first two voyages (1492–93) reached the Bahamas and various Caribbean islands, including Hispaniola, Puerto Rico and Cuba.

The arrival of Europeans ushered in what is termed the Columbian Exchange.

During this period European settlers brought many different technologies and lifestyles with them; arguably the most harmful effect of this exchange was the arrival and spread of disease.

Native Americans, due to the lack of prior contact with Europeans, had not previously been exposed to the diseases that were prevalent on the distant continent. Therefore, they had not built up internal immunity to the diseases or formed any medicines to combat them. Europeans came into the New World bearing various diseases. Those infected with diseases either possessed them in a dormant state or were not quarantined in such a way that distanced them enough from Native Americans not to spread the diseases, allowing them to spread into epidemics.

The diseases brought by Europeans are not easily tracked, since there were numerous outbreaks and all were not equally recorded. The most notable disease brought by Europeans was smallpox.

To start the day … “Go Light a Candle”!!


~~October 27, 2014~~ 

I normally don’t write posts related to God as I consider this to be a very personal subject and individual belief. Yet, I found this song, as I browsed through YouTube looking for inspiration for my first post today. 

I do believe there is a greater power than us. In spite of the many different names, it’s only one. Humans are the ones who have created the differences. 

Our world is in turmoil in many fronts. There are ongoing wars, lack of basic needs for all levels of society, illnesses and epidemics, hunger, injustices, inequality, persecution, hopelessness, frustration, anger, abuse, greed, power hunger, corruption, violence, senseless killings. It needs all the help it can get. We need a respite from all the negativity that surrounds us. We need to connect with spirituality … whatever that may mean to you. 

If connecting with a true higher power can bring about changes, it’s there for us to chose. 

If lighting a candle can make any difference …. let’s do it!

One person can make a difference. Maybe it’s you ….

~~Partial Lyrics~~

“There is a candle in every soul
Some brightly burning, some dark and cold
There is a Spirit who brings a fire
Ignites a candle and makes His home
So carry your candle, run to the darkness
Seek out the helpless, confused and torn
Hold out your candle for all to see it
Take your candle, and go light your world
Take your candle, and go light your world
Frustrated brother, see how he’s tried to
Light his own candle some other way
See now your sister, she’s been robbed and lied to
Still holds a candle without a flame
So Carry your candle, run to the darkness
Seek out the lonely, the tired and worn
Hold out your candle for all to see it
Take your candle, and go light your world …. “

~~Go Light Your World~~

“You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.”

Matthew 5:14-16

We ALL are ONE!!
