History is important. It is a record of the process. One far too long for a single generation to experience or remember. Considering it gives us insight into megacycles we stand too close to to notice.
Our history even more so. It helps us get to grips with where we come from and the monuments we built along the way. Sure, it’s not al sunshine and roses. It rarely is. Often it’s the challenges and the overcoming of it that sets us on a trajectory to a better future.
When the future is obscured in the dense fog, it helps to consider where we have been.
And what treasures we discovered along the way.
