Forgive and (Never) Forget

Thu, 08/14/2014 - 03:56 -- Severia
I want to dance and cry and scream,
In memory of all the things we think are better forgotten.
"Forgive and forget", they say.
Forgive, by all means forgive,
But, please don't forget?
How do you expect to learn anything if you're always forgetting?
Forgetting the mistake that led to the need for forgiveness in the first place makes the entire existence of the human experience irrelevant. 
We're here to learn. 
You cannot learn when you plague yourself with incessant forgetfulness of your faults, of their faults.
Forgive, but please for the sake of every member - never, ever forget.
Always remember.
