We the People: Our history exposes the good, the bad and ugliness throughout our journey. Our history contains courage, the ability to conquer great adversities in the New World and our contributions to building it.
Without the knowledge of history and geography each generation will not be able to make the course corrections necessary to remain relevant in their journey of life amongst other people, and as a nation of people to remain relevant within the family of nations.
Without the knowledge of History, who we are and Geography where we have been scattered, our children will not have the collective consciousness to love one another as one and in turn to love their neighbors as they love themselves; in obedience with one of God’s greatest commandments. Above all, we would lose the purpose, our way, captured in the Preamble of the Constitution of the United States; the enterprize built on our sweat, blood and tears:
“We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the Common Defence, promote the General Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”
The generation of our children lacking the knowledge of History and Geography will fail to produce visionary leadership, to make decisions that affect their Spiritual, Educational and Entrepreneurial growth, in order to contribute to the pillars of national power and to protect future generations from irrelevancies and possible subjugation.
The study of History and Geography is not to make us sad or angry about our past. It is to remind us that we are one people under God regardless of languages and cultures that we may have picked up or developed during our journey. The study of History and Geography is also to provoke creative thoughts and vision of developing leaders, who will in turn develop our people in knowledge and wisdom to continually strengthen our nation from generation to generation.
