Farewell to past with truths & reconciliation

Yesterday, I met Tim who is an English TV documentary film-maker from Britain and we had a really thought-provoking conversation on many subjects on history and society. Holding progrssive views on world and British history, Tim told me that he is dedicated to telling British youths and children true but unpleasant stories of the British Empire and I told him that while many of us, especially those of the elderly generation, would also like to learn more about those stories in the past and to see that grave injustices are acknowledged and, if possible, rectified, we still admire many dimensions of British culture and society. We agree that it is the time for truth and reconciliation for a better world for youths and children of all nations and societies.

Shouldn't we have a truth and reconciliation commission ?
I can think of two watershed events in the recent history of this country.

May 13, 1969 and May 31st 1988 (the day Tun Salleh Abbas got fired).
