What a powerful message from Mr. Seven Hawks.
I am a Suisse-American and could feel the depth of his message.
Despite being born in the US from a generation that came here in the 1700.s, I myself now feel like an invader and would gladly leave if everybody that is part of that historical invasion agrees to live.
I apologize, Mr. Seven Hawks, for my invasion of your land, and your message made me having the Latinos immigrants as a mirror when I look at them on the streets, and now I see in them my own ancestors invading your land.
I feel the shame of ever complaining about the immigrants that made to this land and wishing them removed, when I should also be removed for the sins of my ancestors because the papers that I have stating that I belong here was not issue by a Native American Chief but the white people that established the society I live in today. I thank you for voicing your cry and bringing me back to reality. I now agree with you. Those that are now here, and working hard and have no criminal records should be given a chance to integrate our society, the same way we the European invaders stayed and established ourselves here.
