Briefly on history



We have created this myth about rulers and oppositions for our historians wanted to create heroes and villains.

Maybe it was unintentional but the subjective understanding of history was left alone to its own peril.

We should have guided our youths to understand that history is only a fact that can be slanted to whatever purpose the writer wanted his readers to grasp.

It is now a challenge to most of us how we must lead history to the path that can be embraced by all sectors. If we want to eradicate violence, let us talk about peace.

If we must rally for justice, we must not undermine the importance of peace.

Every history reader is a leader of his own rights. Maybe we cannot undo history. But we can reform the present society.

Just thinking aloud.
