The way we wish things were…

When you consider all the statues at the Vatican that put fig leafs on statues and broke off body parts; it is easy to see we want to recall history by current standards and not standards of the times they were created.  When the WWII memorial was created the statue of FDR covered up his chair (the one’s with wheels)… which makes an odd looking statue that leaves to the imagination his reality.

I like to add to history not take away.  Why is removal of historical realities the only option to deal with today’s issues?
