History lessons

Connecting the past and the present
Crawford aybar

Author George Santayana said, “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” What does this phrase mean? Discuss this idea with your friends and family. Using words and pictures from the St. Petersburg Times, create a collage to make a connection between “then” and “now.” Images and metaphors should express feelings and attitudes as well as behaviors and events. The overall effect should reflect your viewpoint on whether the present world has learned the lessons of history. You may focus on only one theme or on several issues that you find particularly relevant to your own life. Share your thoughts about what you have learned here at the NIE Blogging Zone.
