Many are interested in our history. We read books on those who came before us. Maybe we can’t go out and dig for ancient artifacts, but that doesn’t mean we can’t have some tangible involvement. For every interest or cause there is some group that, with your support, accomplish what you would like to do if you could. Want to protect America’s history? Then check out the Archaeology Conservancy. Since 1980 they have protected hundreds of sites in the United States. We have had a bad habit of burying, flooding or bulldozing our history. Some of this stems from the misconception that there wasn’t much here in the past. That past, however, often whispers advice and lessons that would be beneficial to our future.
