History
History

History tells of tragedy and loss
Prosperity and greed
It tells of sorrow and celebration
Growth and change
Times of triumph
And times of war
And how we got to where we are
They say that those who do not learn
From the past are destined to repeat it.
Did you learn anything from your yesterday,
Or are you...
Destined to repeat it?
