Thought of the Day–8/19/17

Dark roots

Thought of the Day—Trying to change or sanitize history by physically removing and/or defacing historical monuments or omitting and/or changing historical facts is like bleaching your dark hair blonde; eventually, those dark roots will start popping through again; so it is with history, the truth WILL prevail, even when it is hateful, hurtful or unpopular. The past is the past and you can’t change history, but you CAN help to change someone’s future. Human trafficking is a huge problem around the world; why not take that misspent energy used to remove old monuments and use that same effort to attempt to rescue others who are in their own present day bondage? Leave the old monuments where they stand as a reminder that that is not who we are now; we are or should be better than that. Make a positive difference in someone else’s life instead of smugly bragging about the chaos and destruction you have rained down on others all for the sake of your own selfish ideology… “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” George Santayana
