Nelson: Worries new leaders will nix records

Posted

This building in Washington, D.C., houses all documents of our history, both the good and the bad.

Our founding documents are on protected display inside the main entrance area: The Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

Could the “cancel culture” and those in the new incoming administration advocating a “reset” for the country decide to destroy our historical records housed there, either by limiting access or outright destruction?

A nation that does not know its history will repeat it’s mistakes. Just in different ways and forms.
