Why preserve our past?

Found a great quote by Dr. Walter Havighurst  that reinforces the importance of  our work as historians:

“The past is not the property of historians; it is a public possession.  It belongs to anyone who is aware of it, and it grows by being shared.  It sustains the whole society, which always needs the identity that only the past can give.”
