We should be able to create new things without erasing huge swaths of our past, and without disenfranchising huge parts of the populace in the process.
Through the mirror of my mind,
Time after time I see reflections of you and me
Reflections of the way life used to be
Reflections of the love you took from me
I’m all alone now no love to shield me
Trapped in a world that’s a distorted reality
– “Reflections” Lamont Dozier, Brian Holland, Eddie Holland
