The Blue Spring

Hunter-gathers lived under the bluffs near the Blue Spring 10,000 years ago.

Many years later, in 1839, Cherokees stopped at the Blue Spring on their trip from Georgia to Oklahoma. Today we call their journey the Trail of Tears.

Recently, I visited the Blue Spring, the largest spring in northwest Arkansas. It produces 38 million gallons of water every day.

I sat on a bench near the calm water, listening to the wind blow through the trees and watching leaves float down into the pond. For me, it was such a peaceful place—but I thought about the harsh life of those hunter-gatherers and the cruel journey of the Cherokees on the Trail of Tears.

Sometimes, I told myself, we have to remember that there can be moments of peace in an unpeaceful world.

    Throughout this awesome design of things you’ll get an A for effort. Where exactly you lost me personally was on the particulars. As as the maxim goes, the devil is in the details… And that couldn’t be much more correct here. Having said that, let me say to you just what did do the job. The text is actually very persuasive and this is possibly why I am taking an effort to comment. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. Second, although I can certainly notice a leaps in logic you come up with, I am not necessarily certain of how you appear to connect the details which inturn help to make the conclusion. For now I will, no doubt yield to your position but hope in the near future you connect the dots much better.

    Hi there! Do you know if they make any plugins to protect against hackers?

    I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard on. Any tips?
