Yes, history is all those dates, political movements, leaders, etc. we memorize for tests. But there is a beating heart buried in all those facts. History is the story of ordinary people who have to live through those wars, push society to change, stand up for what is morally right—people who dig down deep into their souls to find courage and commitment or just plain stubborn defiance they need to survive a crisis.
It’s part of the glory and excitement of being human. We are capable of poetry, music, philosophy, and of the compassion necessary to fight for justice and to better the lives of others. On the flip side, we are also capable of cowardice, of lying, of crushing and exploiting one another with deliberate cruelty.
So, history is about those choices. There is no better story line, nothing more gripping, more gut-wrenching, more thought-provoking!
