Our future may depend,

On how fully we comprehend,

            Both the good and the bad,

            The uplifting and sad,

Of the past, from which we descend. 

Since omissions can also offend,

Our stories, we may choose to amend.

            His-Story, Her-Story,

            My-Story, Your-Story ...

It’s Our Story in the end.
