   "What is a society without history, but bricks, dirt, and ashes? Without the stories or the memories of those who built it, there's nothing. Without people, there's no life, no heart in history. It's more than just facts left in newspapers, books and archives for someone to reference. Real history is the look and feel of the people. The quirkiness and spunk that every soul added to the group.


   No two cities are the same. From Metamora to Spiceland, from Cairo to Timbuktu. Every place on this planet has its own story. One that deserves to be preserved for the sake of its legacy. For the sake of its memory. For the sake of each individual person who brought it into existence."
