trying to live in the youll find there is plenty in the present that can do bad things to you if you dont pay All of our danger and all of our opportunity exist in the Its often usually by profes sional we can learn from the Im not sure thats Circumstances of the past are as foreign to us as the land scape of We can read about great people of the past and per haps adopt them as role but the matrix of circumstances and issues that confronted them neither exists now nor ever will It is in my to defend or even try to explain slavery as it existed in the United Its a dead issue and So what
