Never Again? Wrong.

I've read several books set before, but written after, WWI in which somebody says that there wouldn't ever be another war, that wars were part of history.                                                                                  
 I used to think the same thing about presidential assassinations; they were a part of history; America would never again lose a president in that way. 
I believed that until this day in 1963.

Reliving One Day From Your Past

Years ago, someone asked me, "If you could go back and relive one day from your past, would you choose a bad one, and fix what had gone wrong, or a good one, and savor it more fully?"

"Neither,"  I said, "because it would probably mean missing out on a day I haven't had yet."

Besides, I can always relive, savor, and change the past by using it in my stories!
