Why we ALL Deserve to be Remembered: AncientFaces - 20 years in 2020

Created on Dec 06, 2020 by Daniel Pinna
How in the world is it that when we die we have only a facebook page with a hundred “RIP” and “Wasn’t he/she a great person” comments? Why is it all that’s left online is a memorial page consisting of a tombstone and an obituary, and if you’re fortunate enough to have a writer in the family, MAYBE the obituary consists of three paragraphs about your life?

Who we are, who we were, is IMPORTANT. How we lived our lives, what we did with our time, who and what we impacted - is important. We all Deserve to be Remembered, and it is up to us, the people that knew them, to show & tell their stories before our memories get lost in history.

We all hear the call

Over the last 20 years we've seen tens of millions of people show that they agree that Everyone Deserves to be Remembered (TDtbR). It is our obligation, each and every one of us, to share the memories of those people important to us. Through storytelling & sharing who these people really were, we connect each other every day with the past, present and future.

To celebrate our 20 year milestone & to share this mission with the world we've released our first video. If you live in our neighborhood in Silicon Valley you might have noticed the spot on your favorite television channels ;)

Thank you, each and every one of you, for your role in making AncientFaces the place to remember & celebrate the lives of people who matter to us.

Do we ALL Deserve to be Remembered?

Sometimes we are asked 'do we ALL really deserve to be remembered?' What about those notorious faces from the past like Adolf Hitler? Our response: Of course we do!

Why? Because it's important to remember the past. It's okay to judge, but it's never acceptable to forget or re-write history. When we forget history we are doomed to repeat it. We need to remember the good and the bad, understand the why & how, so that history stops repeating itself.
