The Deal- On History


 

I cannot understand when anyone says they have no interest in history. Everything we are and everything we will become is rooted in history. We cannot escape our past even if we wanted to. Americans have a tendency to sweep things way under the rug. Not deal with it and hope that things conveniently disappear. Of course life is not like that.

We often wonder why things are the way they are, but we fail to look where answers lie, in the past. Where we evolve in the future is rooted in our past. If we ignore the past, we are bound to repeat it. That is why we cannot for one minute reject history or any effort to understand where we’ve been.
