Respecting history


Respecting “history” Doesn’t mean everyone approves every facet of it.
About removing monuments, that other citizens erected at another time and in their sentiments is a bit disrespectful.
One asks, “why?” “why now?” “what is next on the agenda?”
My voice toward the matter: “Monuments!”


History has been happening
— a long, long time —
God’s creation, so vast,
Generation to generation
Passing its achievements
And “errors” along …
It seems were made
Each, at a particular time,
A particular place — a particular
Contribution to make …
When has history been perfect?
He face the music of the past.
History stands as it happened!
All its glories — all its scars.
History is a “monument”!
