Wiping out the past

Wiping out the past is not an option.
History has happened.
Regrets alone will not scour the pages clean.

The facts are known.
Embroidered by memory, or malice,
but their significance is plain.

Mistakes are made and crimes committed.
Errors of judgement cause devastation.
Prejudice and power overturn common decency.
