Trail of Tears according to Mirth
Guess what, bean? We're going to Red Clay State Park. It's part of something called 'The Trail of Tears'.
"What's the Trail of Tears?"
Well...when people from Europe were settling in America, there were already people here called the Cherokee nation. The Europeans made the Cherokee people move off their land because they wanted it instead. It was very sad for the Cherokee people, and they path they walked away from their home is called the trail of tears. (pause, wondering how much of that she absorbed...)
"That was VERY rude!!! People should NOT treat each other that way! That makes me sad. They need to learn better MANNERS, and learn not to chase people away from their land!"
Wow, honey. I agree. That wasn't a kind thing to do at all.
"I think those mean people had too much sugar. Sometimes, too much makes it hard to control your body."
And there you have it.
