A glimpse of the past, a prophecy of the future

“You have to know the past to understand the present.” Carl Sagan Sagan’s quote makes a lot of sense nowadays, in the midst of what our planet and society are going through. If we don’t stop what we are doing and think about the repercussions of our actions, we might as well doom our future. The…

City of Dreams – 6th Grade
