"IF YOU DESTROY YOUR PAST, YOU ALSO DESTROY YOUR FUTURE."
Dr. Zahi Hawass Undersecretary of the State for the Giza Monuments, Egypt
"YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT THE SAND WILL HIDE IN THE WAY OF SECRETS"
Dr. Zahi Hawass, Undersecretary of the State for the Giza Monuments, Egypt
If Dr.Hawass's words are true, then they don't just apply to Egypt. Canadians must also be vigilant in uncovering and understanding their full heritage -- owning the past we can be proud of and owning the past we would change if we could. (Not picking and choosing aspects of our identity that absolve us of responsibilities.)
Only then can we embrace our full destiny, taking our full place in the world.
