history doesnt lie

thats what my historian brother says
like a lot of water ran out onto a piece of property
the water will find its level and level itself off

thats what history does
it avoids all the right now rhetoric like we all get
now with our right now news
and our different views that are shown based on the
narrow views of the particular commentator or news channel
you are watching
like fox news or msnbc

history doesnt work that way
it will overtime sort itself out
the truth the real truth will eventually show itself


history doesnt lie

its interesting to watch the uproar on the history that is
being forced into the high schools in colorado

this generation of kids
are not stupid
i repeat they are not stupid

i know they have their face in their smartphones and their
ear buds in their ears all the time
they do pay attention as does the generation above them
generation x and the millennials

they know the score
they do not want to be lied to
they dont care as much about race religion politics sexual orientation
or a persons sex as our generation seems to be locked into

so its felt good to see the kids in colorado protest the
school boards possible decision to paint a rosy picture
of the usa history

it wasnt rosy
we slaughtered the american indians stole their land
slaughtered the buffalo
polluted our lands
persecuted minorities for years
invaded places we shouldnt have
fought among ourselves in a terrible war

history repeats itself
over and over again
viet nam iraq
cant bomb yourself to victory
maybe shouldnt been there in the first place

lets tell the truth about our history
these kids want the truth and only the truth about
what really happened

isnt that what we all want about any situation
the truth

history doesnt lie
dont bend the truth about what happened

listen to my historian brother
he speaks the truth
