“Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” – Spanish philosopher George Santaya
I am not shy about offering my opinion on diverse topics, offering my perspective, based on my journey.
Though my way of seeing life and spirit may differ from that of others, I feel it necessary to share mines with you. I share so openly to strengthen my own faith. I proclaim my convictions, sometimes audaciously. I also do so because I believe that most people, especially Black people only hear their arguments. They preach to each other, preaching to the choir, themselves.
History repeats itself. I provide several examples in this post. I present my perspective visually, and in Poetrimony, in a video that I produced.
History Repeats – It’s Already Been Told – History, The Remix | World Relations – Seasons As My Teacher – Kevy Michaels
This is a video about history repeating itself in many ways, including Genocide, Pandemics, School Shootings, Economic Crashes, Military Miscalculations, Mass Extinctions, Racism, Assassinations, etc. It’s Already Been Told is an original poem, cast to jazz music, and vivid visuals.
“History repeats itself, but in such cunning disguise that we never detect the resemblance until the damage is done.” – Sydney J. Harris
History repeats on various dimensions. As with most things in life, I tend to not restrict myself to a one-dimensional view.
