Why the Pilgrims Still Matter

I relate to the past through the people. I don’t think anyone can truly begin to understand the past unless there’s an emotional connection to what happened and the people who lived through it. One reason we love survival tales is because we all say, “What would I have done?” I know I was asking, What would I have done that first winter? And I don’t know. I do know that when I’m hit with a cold, it really nails me, so I probably wouldn’t have made it past January.
