Remember the past as you build the future

I am in Indonesia working on a project to increase the export value of fisheries products. Of course the local people are somewhat preoccupied with the effects of the recent earthquakes. Both the past and the future are important. So as I encourage them to look to the future, I learn from them about their individual and collective pasts. I cannot share their pain but I certainly understand and respect it.
