It is a well known fact by now that Columbus did not discover the Americas in 1492. It is a great legend and myth but the facts do not hold up. Norse explorer Leif Erikson set foot in the Americas long before 1492, according to Icelandic sagas. Archaeologists found remains of a Viking-type settlement in the “new world” in 1963. It is believed to have existed around 1000 A.D. That’s roughly half a century before Christopher Columbus “discovered” America. Let’s also remember there were native Americans on the continent – they were the first nations. So the “discovery” of America was a European discovery.

Enjoy your holiday anyway if you have it. If not console yourself with the “facts.” Whatever your day may bring start strong. It’s Monday and time to make this day a day of personal discovery. Soren Kierkegaard said, “Life has its own hidden forces which you can only discover by living.” Be you! Discover something new about yourself. Jesus said, “You’re blessed when you get your inside world—your mind and heart—put right. Then you can see God in the outside world.” (Matt 5:8)
