a glimpse of the past

I remember bits of history. Glimpses of times past and lives lived and loves lost. It sounds dramatic to say so, and that is not my intention. It is my understanding that a blog is meant to give one a place to share the world as they see it with others. That is my intention. To share these glimpses of the past with those in the present, in the hopes that the past will be remembered. Did all these people I speak of live? I think the lesson they have to teach is a living thing and that is more important. Some of them can be researched by the historians. Some of them must be left to the psycologists. Others still should be left to the theologists and philosophers. But the lesson of their lives, the memory of their lives should be told.
