The Death of History

This post says everything I believe is wrong about history getting eradicated or so completely distorted that people never learn from the mistakes of the past. As my strap line says, ‘How can we improve our future if we don’t understand the past?’

History, as seen through my eyes.

I won’t need to cite any sources on this one, this is coming straight from my heart. History is dying right in front of our eyes. It pains me to see that people want to remove history simply because they don’t like it.

    Best wishes, Pete.
