Those who are ignorant of the past, choose to ignore the past, or wish to erase the past from our history are doomed to repeat it. We are already experiencing oppression of opinions, statues are being lynched, physical abuse is being rationalized… what comes next? Whips and chains? Today’s actions of prejudice are only bringing the past back into our present. What does our future hold if we do not rise above this madness? Another civil war perhaps? Wake up America! Our country was made to set us FREE. As countrymen we should respect each others’ differences and find a way to live in harmony as it was meant to be.
The present is today’s gift.
