Remember


“Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it” – George Santayana

Only a person who enjoys self-flagellation would dwell on the past. As humans, we prefer to remember the happy times. The laugh of a child, a soothing word from a parent, or the first declaration of love from our mate.

We hold these memories close and cherish them daily.

But to paraphrase Mr. Santayana, to forget or ignore the past puts those children, our spouse, our mothers and fathers in danger.

Our enemy once said, ‘You have the watches. We have the time’.

Never forget.

  1. Don't dwell or live in the past, but don't forget it entirely.

  2. I love that picture of the beams pointing toward the sky. I wonder how big the Freedom Tower is now. It's gotta be soaring above Manhattan.
