    I truly think that history is one of the most

    important sections of Education. I think truly learning about history isn't just facts, dates and names. It's about learning what those things mean and it's about pulling together information from many sources and becoming aware enough to make a decision for yourself. History...

    Tomorrow is veterans day in the U.

    S. or as originally it was known as armistice day. It's the day that ww1 ended almost 100 years ago. That was supposed to be the war that ended all wars. No shock that less than 30 years later we'd be fighting another war. As long there is humans they will be wars.
