Remembering the Past

Sometimes you have to go back in time,

with your mind, remember those good old days

in order to know what you have now.

Some would rather just forget those days,

but for you not to remember them is taking away

everything you have done in your life,

what was the point in living?  If you can't

remember the past.  We are not to live

in the past, but to hold on to it, so we don't

forget.  Memories are a good thing to have,

good or bad.

    Excellent, James, and as for my party, I do not like either one, but I just hate the Republican side more. So I am Independent, and I hope one day a Republican that actually has answers to our problems will come along to convince me otherwise!
