When considering the question: should we remember? It is very important to firstly ask, have we ever forgotten? Can we ever forget? Secondly, we should ask, who wants to forget? Who benefits when all the injustices stay silent in the past? Thirdly, are we asking if it is a problem of remembering,
or is it a problem of speaking truth, or a problem of breaking down silence and reclaiming our human dignity?
The quote of the day…
“Remembrance restores possibility to the past, making what happened incomplete and completing what never was. Remembrance is neither what happened nor what did not happen but, rather, their potentialization, their becoming possible once again.”
― Giorgio Agamben, Potentialities: Collected Essays in Philosophy
