We may die, but our actions are immortal
Thanks... I like heritage and culture. When I teach my classes about Carthage they want to hear about Hannibal crossing the Alps and war elephants, and such... and i tell them... but i concentrate on Rome burning Carthage and salting the earth... I want them to realize why we don't know as much about Carthage as we do about Rome.. that all human culture and experience is a slim volume in a great library... and that to not learn about other different peoples and work to preserve unique cultures is to pull volumes out of that library that can never be replaced... salting the earth... removing from the storehouse things that memory may not carry to future generations... I'm sure this sounds cheesy and the fact that i am dashing it off probably doesn't help... but i'm sure you get the drift... thanks..
