“I think having no sense of the story of your
country is not greatly removed from having no
sense of the story of your life. It’s a form of
amnesia and can be as detrimental to a
society as to an individual. If you have no
story, I don’t think you have a soul. And if we
lose our collective memory, our story as a
society and as an ongoing experiment, we’re
going to be in big trouble.”
- Historian David McCullough Author of John Adams
