Thank you IR for a well done article, ”Rewriting History” on Oct. 24. Sadly, we cannot change history. There is no chance to go back and make things “right” from our new perspective. We can only go forward. It appears however, that today is our chance to recognize there is never just one side to a story and usually in life what we initially hear or are taught is not fully accurate. Right now we can resist the fear and seize the opportunity to start learning the rest of the story of our past, and we will be better for it. In doing so we can possibly begin to “create a future” that is more just -- and will lead to a story we will all be proud to tell.
