Let’s not forget the relics of time. They are like old wines; the more aged it is, the better it becomes.
Thus, we need a place to store old Inopacan treasures for the next generations to behold and be informed of stories and things of the past. A dedicated place is needed for old things to keep its existence, and for every one to see them forever.

Thus, Inopacan needs to have its own museum or sort of conservation. As what I’ve said in one of my previous blogs, I wish Inopacan would have its own municipal museum and public library where all the literary works, relics, memorabilia of olden times and history about Inopacan and about us Inopacnons would be stored and conserved for perpetuity.
Or else, rust, termites, and loss of memory and references will vanish these treasures to oblivion.
He who does not look back will never know how far he have gone - but what to look back at when old things are no longer there anymore?
