A story about why plundering and pillaging definitely did not stop with the Vikings.
Yeah, we’ve been watching Vikings.
We just discovered the show this year, but we caught up quickly on Netflix. There’s a lot of pillaging and plundering going on. I have some Viking blood in me, according to my Ancestry DNA test. Regardless, I would not have lasted long as a Viking. Maybe a couple of raids, maybe incoming or outgoing. One of those bad ass battle axes would catch me across the back of my head, and those Viking hair braids didn’t offer much protection. Or Ragnar Lothbrok would make me feel really bad about not going to invade England with him with a total of 20 other guys. Maybe I could be in the Viking band or something.
Life is much better now. We can sleep soundly in our homes without worrying too much about marauders in the night. We have a lot to be thankful for. But there is still plenty of plundering and pillaging going on right under our noses. [Read more…] about Pssst. Your village is being plundered. Here’s how to fix it.
