55 - On a Mission


Convert all the heathens.
Teach them to pray.
Then put them to work.
Have them build things all day.

Make them build walls.
Watch them plant seeds.
Make them do penance.
Have them do some good deeds.

So what if some died?
Insist on submission.
They didn't mean to be evil.
It was just...their mission.











Got a story you can tell in 55 words? The G-Man wants to know!

I often wonder why they didn't just all walk off. Better to mind one's life than one's afterlife.

It amazes me too. Although, They did hang on to a lot of their cultural ways if worshiping which was / is a good thing. I lived in San Antono TX and remember the missions well.

It was even worse in Australia where the half cast children of aborigines were taken from their homes and brought up separately often never seeing their families again.
