History tells us that humanity can recover from existential threats; after all life must go on, doesn’t it? But the milestones along the journey are important. They remind us where we have been, and where we now stand. In the meantime, the world has changed and how! In short, I recommend we let go of bitterness: forgive but never forget which are the recurring lessons here. Truth and reconciliation are the way – an honest process, a lasting educational framework is the lasting lesson – which would be an institutionalised process and heaven knows we need it.
