I remember back in high school, many kids would complain about History class, wondering what is the use or relevance of studying history. Why on earth do the things that happened long ago matter, especially since no one can go back to right past mistakes? Many of us clearly did not understand the important reasons to study history, and the huge impact our history can have on us today.
Studying history is important because it allows us to understand our past, which in turn offers an understanding of our present. It gives us a remarkable perspective to see the world we now live in, and is all part of being human.
