You know the saying: he who doesn't understand history is doomed to repeat it. And when it's repeated, the stakes are doubled.
Look back over the past, with its changing empires that rose and fell, and you can foresee the future too.

Anyone can hide. Facing up to things, working through them, that's what makes you strong.
