Statue of William Penn

I am grateful to feature something nice.  On this date in 1683, William Penn made a great treaty with the Native Americans at Shackamaxon.  On that date, Penn said the folowing:

“We meet on the broad pathway of good faith and good-will; no advantage shall be taken on either side, but all shall be openness and love. We are the same as if one man’s body was to be divided into two parts; we are of one flesh and one blood.”

It is nice to know someone treated the Native Americans right at some point in our American history.
