    I reviewed a book, “Magic WOrds,” about the Jewish translator and member of the Ponce, who were decimated on the Trail of Tears, during which Julius One-Tongue’s betrothes saves many, only to die herself. Even if we belong to a more aggressive culture that has prevailed in a Darwinian sense, if we are human, we must witness and tell the truth about how we arrived where we are now.
