“Dakota Native Americans rode horses from South Dakota 330 miles to Mankato in December to commemorate the 1862 hanging of 30 braves in Mankato-the largest mass execution in US History.”

That is a quotation under the picture of the ride shown in the STAR TRIBUTE this morning, March 25, 2014 in the Metro Section on Page B5.

And with that I feel exonerated!

A few years ago, I mentioned this annual event to my family when I was visiting at Christmas and boy was I put in my place. That would be impossible to do, you know, and how could I be so dumb?

And just like in my youth, I fell right back into the role and accepted their criticism, and convinced myself that indeed, I had to be the dumb one. Weird how that happens, isn’t it?
