Why Study History - Poem by Tom Zart
The people of Earth face many problems
Struggling just to live and maintain peace.
There's differences in language, faith and race
With misguided hated unwilling to cease.
To solve these problems that plague mankind
We must strive as never before.
Demanding justice with truth in settling disputes
While recalling the loss and heartbreak of war.
War is an emotional release for man
Practiced since the first stones were cast.
Could it be nature's way of thinning the numbers
As the fallen are consumed by the past.
Some have asked why must we study history
It just encourages us to live in the past.
When we forget God and submit to whatever
The sorrows of our sins forever last.
