URGENT! Take Action to stop glorifying the mass murderer Ponce De Leon!

URGENT!! We only have a few weeks to defeat this ridiculous idea.

Please don't let Ponce get credit for "discovering" Florida. Please email the addresses right away. This is important. Thank you.

--------------------
This is very URGENT! Don't let them glorify the name of a genocidal, rapist, killer conquistador. Ponce de leon doesn't deserve to be praised and glorified. His name belongs no where on our Sacred Land. Other people that did the same things he did (Hitler comes to mind) don't get their names attached to beautiful natural lands of their victims. How would "Hitler Avenue" go over in a place like Jerusalem? ... NOT VERY WELL!
