Experts in autocracies have pointed out that it is, unfortunately, easy to slip into normalizing the tyrant, hence it is important to hang on to outrage. These incidents which seem to call for the efforts of the Greek Furies (Erinyes) to come and deal with them will, I hope, help with that. As a reminder, though no one really knows how many there were supposed to be, the three names we have are Alecto, Megaera, and Tisiphone. These roughly translate as “unceasing,” “grudging,” and “vengeful destruction.”

Every Thanksgiving weekend for the past 18 years, Arapaho and Cheyenne youth lead a 180-mile relay from the Sand Creek Massacre National Historic Site to Denver.

The annual Sand Creek Massacre Spiritual Healing Run opens at the site of the Sand Creek Massacre near Eads, Colorado, with a sunrise ceremony honoring some 200 Arapaho and Cheyenne people who lost their lives in the infamous massacre. This brutal assault was carried out by Colonel John Chivington on Nov. 29, 1864.

While the Sand Creek massacre has been the subject of Bordello TEEZE-06RW 5 3/4 Heel, 1 3/4 Hidden PF Wide Width Pump B00IA61DI4 14 B(M) US|Drk Grey Satin-pewter Rs, much less attention has been given to Lucky Brand Women's Bremma Ankle Boot B07C89PCM1 W 7 W US|Black of this horrific event: U.S. soldiers Captain Silas Soule and Lt. Joseph Cramer.

These were men who rejected the violence and genocide inherent in the “conquest of the West.” They did so by personally refusing to take part in the murder of peaceful people, while ordering the men under their command to stand down. Their example breaks the conventional frontier narrative that has come to define the clash between Colonial settlers and Native peoples as one of civilization versus savagery.

This is a theme I’ve previously addressed as a scholar in the fields of adidas Originals Women's Pw Hu Tennis Shoe B077X9Q8L6 6.5 B(M) US|Ice Pink/Ice Pink/Chalk White and Colonial history, both in my book on the Indian captivity narrative genre, “Buried in Shades of Night,” and more recently in writings on Sand Creek.

Soule’s noble act of compassion at Sand Creek is humbly conveyed in a Skechers Wave Lite Don't Mention It Womens Slip On Skimmer Sneakers B076TVX8GN 5.5 B(M) US|Black/Pink included in the Denver Public Library Western History Collections: “I was present at a Massacre of three hundred Indians mostly women and children… It was a horrable scene and I would not let my Company fire.”

Refusing to participate, Soule and the men of Company D of the First Colorado, along with Cramer of Company K, bore witness to the incomprehensible. Chivington’s attack soon descended into a frenzy of killing and mutilation, with soldiers taking scalps and other grisly trophies from the bodies of the dead. Soule was a devoted abolitionist and one dedicated to the rights of all people. He stayed true to his convictions in the face of insults and even a threat of hanging from Chivington the night before at Fort Lyon.

The Cheyenne and Arapaho will return to Denver this year to honor their ancestors and remember Soule’s and Cramer’s conscience and humanity. This will be done through an offering of prayers and blessings, along with the performance of honor songs.

Soule’s grave.

On the third and final day of the healing run, they will gather for a sunrise ceremony at Soule’s flower-adorned grave at Denver’s Riverside Cemetery. The participants will then continue on to 15th and Lawrence Street in downtown Denver. There, a plaque is mounted on the side of an office building at the place where Soule was murdered on April 23, 1865. His death, for which no one was ever brought to justice, occurred only two months after he testified against Chivington before the Army commission.

Over the last few decades, Soule’s grave and place of death have been transformed into sacred sites of remembrance within a violent and traumatic frontier past.

Dave Hayes, a self-declared prophet, Christian author [book sales delinked], and online QAnon activist who is better known as the “Praying Medic,” [RWNJ delinked] predicted during a livestream broadcast [RWNJ delinked] yesterday that MAGA’s “army of digital soldiers” will become more powerful and influential than the mainstream media within the next few months.

“If we work as a unit, as a body, as an army of digital soldiers, we are going to overcome and destroy the mainstream media,” Oasis Women's Zoey Fisherman Shoes B0050HNCXU 9.5 B(M) US|Black, as he recounted a prophetic dream in which God supposedly showed him that President Trump was waging “a battle to the death” against the media.

“Trump is going to destroy the mainstream media,” he added. “And there is going to be a media that comes and replaces the mainstream media and that media is us.”

The billionaire Donald J. Trump’s bid to become a born-again Christian failed over the weekend after Jesus Christ turned down his friend request, campaign officials have acknowledged.

Jesus, who has not generally been active on Facebook, made a rare appearance on the social network on Monday to announce His decision to ignore the presumptive Republican nominee’s request for a personal relationship with Him.

In a brief post, Jesus offered the following explanation: “Just everything.”
