Preserving the Past

The future is exciting, but we cannot and must not forget the past.

Right now, there is so much absent from our knowledge of the world, simply because there was a time when we lacked the means to document what was going on around us.

Today is different and it is our responsibility to respect and preserve the legacies of human history for future generations. This could be as simple as archiving a letter, as complex as reproducing a masterpiece or as commonplace as recording world events through film and photojournalism. It’s not just about creating a museum to look at but telling the story of our world and gifting our future world family with knowledge and wisdom.
