This day in history
What we are going to do these next few weeks is look into history and important quotes. We are going to look back at them and see what we can take from them and learn from these experiences, and these wise — well, we hope wise — quotes from the past and see what we can attempt to learn from them.
Take a look at the calendar, and think about what happened 10 years ago today; 20, 50, 100 years ago. How did this event change how we operate today? Or how did it greatly change what happened then? Was there some great thing invented this day? What about in wars? Was there some big battle on this day that changed what the outcome of the war was?
How often do you actually think about the past? Not just, “Oh hey, today was Lincoln’s birthday,” but actually think about what occured. Think about how people were affected and what this meant for the time period and the future.
So we are going to talk about “this day in history.”
Think about how much this invention must have meant to the New Yorkers. Now people don’t really think much of it. I think that people really just don’t think about it, they know its there, and they like it because they don’t have to walk as far, but I’m not sure that people actually sit and think about what it would do to everyone if all the Subways disappear.
Next week we shall either tell you what happened in that day in history, or we will have a quote for you to think about. *Queue serious thinking faces*
