My Daily Thought: May 8th, 2007

Have you ever heard that history repeats itself? Why do you think that is? If that's true (which it seems to be), does that mean we're currently raising up the next Hitler? The next Obama? It would make a lot of sense if we actually learned from our mistakes, but apparently we don't because there is still horror going on in the world. There was the Holocaust in the late 1930's, and less than 60 years later we have the genocide in Rwanda; and currently it's happening in Darfur and North Korea. Why can't we learn from our mistakes and actually PREVENT millions of innocent people from being slaughtered? Now granted, America isn't the one provoking these things from happening - but why does it happen at all? Why can't we all (seriously) just get along??
