It’s like they always say “the past is prologue.”
Sure, there’s something charming about historical sites and a quick glimpse into yesterday. But the value of the past is far larger than a few colorful pictures for the ol’ Facebook page.
We must keep the lessons alive to avoid repeating dire mistakes such as the Sand Creek Massacre (1864), the Civil War (1865) and the Japanese internment camps of WWII (1942). And further, we need them to inspire us toward greater achievement. Think of the challenge overcome by Pike’s Peak Cog Railway (1889) or when Colorado’s Daniels & Fisher Tower rose to become the tallest building in the States (1910).
