My question is, what is it that makes a person remembered? Who are the people who you remember and who would you rather forget and why?
Why are people with negative lives remembered? Bandits, train and bank robbers, dictators, philosophers, philanthropists...
What accomplishments in someone's life allows them to enter though the giant door and what makes a person fall out of favor and be expelled from historical remembrance?
The giant door is where giants enter. What makes a person a giant among their peers?
Some people have been sought during their lives and nearly wiped from the pages of time only to later become saints after they are gone.
Some enter, some exit this giant door of posterity....
