Thought for today....

Since today is Columbus Day (observed) it really got me to thinking about this somewhat over looked holiday.

Today (in theory) is the first day of American History. Think about it!
No one even knew the Americas were here, except the native Americans, of course. Then old Christopher Columbus runs aground, convinced he has hit India. So we are discovered, named and recorded all in a day! That is pretty neat! And we are still a young country, even by Columbus's discovery date, compared to the other countries.
