A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin, and culture is like a tree without roots. (Marcus Garvey, late Jamaican-born political leader)

History is not often a favorite subject of young students. They live for the here and now, and as they grow, they’re thinking more of the future than the past. How unfortunate! By not knowing our past, we miss out on why things are as they are. An American songwriter known as Quavo said it well, “History repeats itself so you might wanna pay attention.”

History merely repeats itself. It has all been done before. Nothing under the sun is truly new. (Ecclesiastes 1:9)
