What relevance does the past have to us today? Is there meaning hidden in the stories that have stood the test of time? What can we learn by exploring our history? These are some of the questions that have stuck out in my mind throughout my travels. Consequently, much of my path has revolved around finding interesting parts of America’s story.
In an attempt to flesh out my understanding of how and why we are where we are today, I have continually found knowledge by visiting the areas where these stories originated. This days quest brought me to Mount Moriah Cemetery in Deadwood South Dakota where the journey became strangely personal and pushed me to contemplate the meaning of my own story.
