An important part of our heritage is in our architecture. It is our architecture that reflects our past how we deal with our history and how we value our history. It anchors us to our past and gives body to family stories, the buildings where our forefathers lived and worked. Without knowing where we come from, we cannot determine where we want to go. As in any other place in the world we choose to preserve some of our historic buildings but destroy to many others only regretting it after the fact. More care should be given to the few historical buildings we have left so we do not lose our connection to the past.
