The history of any nation is part of the history of humanity. That means that every nation must confront its Heart of Darkness. Some nations refuse to do that. At the moment, the United States is trying not to do that. Attempts to confront history are labeled "woke."
With this newly established holiday, we are compelled to confront the dark part of our history. With each passing holiday, we will be forced to consider how far we have progressed or devolved. Let's hope we can learn from history -- and not repeat it.
