So, I didn't want to post this, because the seen can never be unseen. But, it's a part of history that WILL be repeated if younger generations are not educated! There are teenagers that live in America that don't even know who Hitler was. It's sickening, it's terrifying, and if changes aren't made in society of how we treat our fellow humans, we will have a worse future than imaginable. PLEASE DON'T FORGET THAT WE ARE THE MAKERS AND CHANGERS OF HISTORY!!!!
