Erasing history to change culture is dangerous territory

Recent trends have lead to attempts at recrafting and erasing what happened in our past as a means to realign our future culture. We have all made mistakes and have lots of failures which many try to hide in the closets of their mind.  When they come to be known is not the time to re-sculpt them into something less or more than it was at the time it happened.  The real opportunity is in learning from our failures and promise to engage in a new and better way of conducting ourselves.  Rewriting history to make it sound better or worst does not change history. It just sets in motion another mistake and the future culture pays dearly for us not learning from the failure again.
