When it comes to history, philosophy, theology, justice, equity, creativity, and art we must have a stance of gratitude, forgiveness, and humility.
Gratitude for those that came before us, since we would not be who we are, think the way we think, or do what we do without them.
Forgiveness for where they could not speak into our time. Forgiveness for where they were wrong. Forgiveness for the wrongs that need to be put right.
Humility, since our grand-children will look back and name where we went wrong. They will see areas where we are blind. They will understand concepts for which we do not yet have names.
