Happy Columbus Day!
ERG invites you to read this essay - "Don't Feel Guilty About Celebrating Christopher Columbus - a Man on a Mission for God."
Our age is, as the essay notes, exceedingly negative and cynical especially about the fruits of Western Civilization. Public school students are certainly being conditioned to think that way, day after dreary day.
But the Italian Columbus, and his benefactor, Queen Isabella of Spain, deserve to be remembered for his New World discoveries and perilous voyages. After all, without him and her, we, the American people (peoples?) might not be.
Grazie mille, Italia! Gracias, España!
