There is a long, long history of things that have been terrible, horrible life altering events.
Reading about them, whether in non-fiction, autobiographies or historical fiction that may elaborate more details and “humanize” the story as well as in classes and lecture halls is essential.
This cannot happen again.
Yet, sometimes, it does.
That doesn’t make it right, good or acceptable.
Don’t try to erase the past. That long, long history details out the things that we should watch for – and make sure that we do everything we can to prevent it from happening again – or, at least be prepared with how to react if it does.
