Some people say that you should never look backwards, but I do not agree. I think it is important to live in the present, not the future or the past. And it is sometimes important to look at the past, to see how far we have come – not to live in the past, but rather to learn from the past. We can learn a lot by looking at what has happened in the past – as a country, as a people, as a person. If we pay attention and look at the past with honest eyes looking only for the truth, I believe we will find things that we have done that we can choose to do again, and things that we have done that we can choose to not do again. Even the best of us have things in our pasts that we do not want to repeat, and looking to the past is how we find them.
