Letting Go

Gentle disagreement, with the flurry of "Never Forget!" posts that appeared a week ago, on 11 September. Why? "Never Forget" hasn't worked very well in the Balkans, the Middle East, the Indian subcontinent, etc. Similarly on an individual level, where clinging to the past destroys personal relationships. Better bumper sticker: "Let It Go!" Maybe even turn the other cheek. [1]
