“On the Pulse of Morning” by Maya Angelou

A friend sent me a beautiful quote today regarding my artwork.

“We cannot undo the past, but we can recognize what has happened and why. To ignore past misdeeds is to condone them, if only by silence; to acknowledge past misdeeds is to educate, and to educate is to prepare the way for a better tomorrow. Historical tragedies must not be forgotten but kept alive in our individual and collective historical memories as tangible reminders of what can never be allowed to happen again.

History, despite its wrenching pain,
Cannot be unlived, but if faced
With courage, need not be lived again.”
