My Motto is, you have to read something to learn something, then you have to remember it so you can share it with someone else. Share all you know about your own history and the history of others. Curious minds want to be fed. Felina Silver Robinson

From beginning to end history tells a story
Not just about me or you
We learn about everyone and everything

History is a story about the world
It tells a story about those who have lived and died,
It tells you about those who were wronged or who was always right
It’s about the worlds leaders and the worlds followers

We learn about…
The inventors
The gate keepers
The farmers
The doctors
The merchants
The mothers
The fathers
The children

History involves decisions
Decisions that have shaped the world
Decisions that have changed the world
Some good
Some bad

History shows you the power behind each
Man, woman and child
It teaches you about the mistakes not to make the next time around

What mark will leave in our history?
