This house is on the historic register here in Alexandria LA and it is so beautiful it makes a excellent testament on holding on to the old. Not to mention remembering were we have come from.
Good or bad our past has made us into who we are today. I think that by destroying so much of the things that remind us of what has gone on before we have become an unforgiving society so quickly to become angry an judgmental. It seems to me that we have moved backwards because we are so afraid of making the same mistakes as those in the past.
So the question is do we keep hanging on to the past or let it go? I say lets hold on to it and learn from it pouring ourselves into our neighborhoods and communities. Building up our memorials and growing our communities.
