The Four Laws were given to the early people twenty thousand years ago. They were given again at the time of the great flood and again five to six thousand years ago. The first of the four laws is "Do not violate (hurt or harm) your fellow humans." Nations have crumbled because of the vile treatment of people through slavery, keeping the poor down and holding them to their place, to the most severe form of sacrificing the human body. One such violation was the Sand Creek Massacre in 1864 - an event that killed an estimated 230 peaceful people. To move forward forgiveness has to occur. An example of forgiveness is to change the name of a holiday that honors a human that caused harm to indigenous people. Changing the name to Indigenous Peoples’ Day is a step in the right direction for peace to occur.
