Island's gonna sink - History Harry White hrwhite I agree. It is a shame that they never taught us any local history. I have learned more SI history at this web site than I did in the 18 years I lived on The Island. I wonder if they are teaching SI history in the SI school system now. If not why? I believe hometown history would hold the interest of the students.
I do not think knowing hometown history would have kept me there. I think we all search for greener pastures, look for adventure or just want to move on. I wanted to see the world. I was also running away from home. I had to get away from my family. Sad but true. I think I did the right thing. I wish things had been different at home.
