to and embracing the future and not dwelling on superstitions or the past. I wish folks well in their personal and cultural rehabilitation. Zann: Can you see the educational components in both the effort being expressed here as well as in the language and plans that will follow the passing of the resolution? Reader # 2: NO I can't at all. History as represented in plain fact speaks for itself, not in some academic's or politician's neo-interpretation of it. Not via a revisionist history judged by WHOM? Would you allow anyone to write historical resolutions or just some special designated segment? Could the KKK write resolutions or just duly qualified liberal academics? Yea, thought so. Again, Soc101A teaches that we cannot judge historical events by today's standards - remember - and any resolution today condemning the past is doing that. We could spend a lifetime and millions making resolutions going back to Indian slights, colonization, Egyptian and African slavery, and cave men and it would do NOTHING for solving today's problems for the future. Again, you dwell solely in grievances of the past. Or you are an academic who benefits form such work. Move on. Can you? Zann: I will think on that and get back to you. Reader #2: Please don't. We're done. Thanks Until next week, be well. Zann Nelson is a researcher specializing in historical investigations, public speaker and award -winning freelance writer and columnist.

➤ Hales, from Page 10 there is so much more to loving. Rather than thinking that responding to love only happens once a year, may we be in a “loving mode” each day. Yes, words of affection and care are extremely significant, but actions trump everything. President Theodore Roosevelt was once quoted, “Nobody cares how much you know, until they know how much you care.” Let us all think about that.
