indeed, that’s a great way of celebrating the preservation day. still, sometimes i feel that human needs may overthrow the feeling of having to preserve what our ancestors have left us. recently when writing a report for I came across a piece on how in some cities, e.g. Alexandria, historic houses were destroyed and instead of them affordable housing were built. to me that’s horrendous !!
