    In a void of thoughts

    Life, Pimchanok Phungbun Na Ayudhya, Published on 08/02/2016

This might have been the very beginning where I -- as an individual -- started to keep my mouth shut. Instead of expressing my opinions, I choose to bottle up my thoughts and keep mum when it comes to politics.

More than a few anthropologists note that as Native Americans lived in North, Central and South America, they would have been living there for centuries before Columbus even set foot on Santo Domingo. There is also reason to believe that America had pre-Columbian visitors — the Vikings on the Atlantic coast and the Chinese on the Pacific coast. And hadn't the Aztecs spoken of white men in ships in their forefathers' day? Evidence is persuasive, but not conclusive of those comings and goings.
