Mapquest instructions always end with “arrival at destination.” Undoubtedly, there is no destination, just an ongoing journey replete with twists and turns. As time propels us forward, it is memories of the past that will inform our future. A life lived in the past would be no life for me. But future generations sharing tragic events of our past is what gives me confidence that history will not repeat itself.
