Most people would say that Mary Rowland’s narrative complicates the widely known assumption that the English has no Most people would say that Mary Rowland’s narrative complicated the known intolerance that the English colonization had because we get to see that even they were being attacked by the natives of this land. That is a side of the story that I’ve personally never been introduced to until this class. At first I thought that I should sympathize with her story because after all, we all are humans and nobody should be treated so harshly. But I can’t be naive and allow myself to think that way, because if we take into consideration the ratio of the English victims versus the Native victims, we know which side had the most victims. Aside from that, when I was talking to my partner about whether we should sympathize or not, his response was “no, I sympathize with the natives because they had to go to those extremes–remember these were real peaceful people!” Which is true. I forgot to look at the intentions of the English versus the Natives when they would attack each other. Technically speaking, the Natives were practicing self-defense by any means necessary, and Im sure they didn’t intend to hurt babies and families, but they were trying to protect their families and their land.
