Bama thank you .  I swear it is a simple truth but one that took me years to realize. 

I remember sitting on the wall surrounding the graves of the Mountain Meadow Massacre  in Utah.  I looked at the surrounding area and thought about the time period 1857 in Utah.  I said to the friend I was with, "you know you can't really balme the killers for what they did."  She went off screaming at me "Murder is Murder".   I said , "Sitting here now in the 20th Century you can not imagine what it must have been like to this group of people who had moved west to practice their religion and now were being invaded again."   Not the best way to end of a visit to an old friend . 

Reading the book Kit Carson and the Indians also has added to my belief .
