We study History in school because first of all it is part of our curiculum and seconds because we are supposed to learn from The past to make a better future .
It has been a while since I graduated and I cannot exactly remember what reason our teacher gave us as to WHY we have History in class and I do not know if teachers nowadays tell their students WHY they have to study History.
What I do know for sure is that it is important to learn for exams in History to pass and to have a good grade and it is needed to so you can easier apply for future jobs and or College .
I think it is very important to emphasize to students that they study history BECAUSE History repeats itself from century to century !
Because then students will understand History better and it will subconsciously give them a sense of responsibility to create a better future which is The ultimate goal !
We have every year a holiday in remembrance of The Holocaust to keep us mindful of what happened and HOW it happened.
And to make sure it NEVER happens again !
Now we have a Presidential election coming up and sad to say we have a candidate who resembles in his views The Nazie leader who I will NOT name here as to not trigger anybody and The saddest part is that he has a lot of fans !
It is horrific !
Although I am still young , I have heard throughout my life politicians and mainstream mm people say " This is The U.S ! What happened in Europe will NEVER happen in The United States ! We are a welcoming and democratic and liberal country !"
And NOW in 2016 we have THIS candidate and he seems to have a horrific amount of supporters !
I am shaking my head in sadness and my heart aches :(
