People are an interesting lot. They always come up with something juicy and controversial to explain their ideological inclinations. But such is life and its dynamics.
Some people love to say that history does not matter because it is all in the past. They argue that since we cannot change it we must not make it a part of our lives.
Allow me to categorically submit that history matters. Whether we are agreeable or not, we are all products of our past. We cannot go forward by ignoring our past but by acknowledging it and making peace with it. We all need closure with our past in order to face our future with boldness.
