If we just "move on," and choose to "forget" the shameful aspects of our history, two things will happen:
**We won't be able to adequately address the lingering effects of, in this case, slavery;
**We will act ignorantly of our history and make similar mistakes again.

I agree with your "just move on and choose to forget" comments, but if we were not a "beacon of light to the world", the Gettysburg address would be meaningless, and we would not have the imigration problem we have had for over 30 years.

So when is this "Old Enough To Know Better" supposed to kick in?
