History is about people and events but trust me, there is nothing more interesting than studying other people, living in a different time, and living under different circumstances. Some of you are the first in your family to be born in the 21st Century (you can truthfully say, your parents were born LAST century!). You are the kids of the new millennium. Everything you do becomes history and will one day be studied by your descendents. You, like those who came before you, are creating a story that can only be understood decades from now.
