"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."
