I was in tears when I read the foreward (and it's only one page):
One of the most tragic episodes in this sad history is known as the Trail of Tears. In 1838, sixteen thousand Cherokees were evicted from their homeland in Georgia and forced to relocated to Oklahoma one thousand miles away. Travelling in winter without proper food, clothing, or shelter, four thousand people died en route and had to be buried in shallow, unmarked graves. (p. 9)That's 1 out of every four (25%) people. After I read that (to mayself), Charis asked me, "Mama, what's wrong?" I told her, "Mama read something very sad."
