Introducing Karma

Published September 25, 2015 by lynn k scott

The lil miss was very engaged in last night’s history lesson. We were discussing the Spanish and French explorers.

We read about De Soto, who was wealthy, but wanted more riches. He had planned on conquering the Indians, even though he knew they had killed Ponce de Leon.  The book went on to say some of his men died because of fights with the Indians and others because they became ill.  Basically, he was responsible for those deaths because of his greed.

The outcome of De Soto’s exploration, was he never found gold (false stories) but he did happen upon the Mississippi River and is credited with that discovery.

The book said how he eventually became sick with fever and died. My precious daughter said, “that’s what he gets for being greedy”.  I responded, “that’s what’s known as Karma”.

I never considered that at her age. I just learned the name, discovery, date and moved on. History is going to be fun with her.
