This is our final year in a full 4 year history cycle. As we get nearer and nearer to current history I realize how little has changed. Even as far back as the history we are studying in Ancient Rome, there are so many similarities. Humankind has had many heroes and many villains throughout all time. The have always been meaningless wars, and until Jesus comes again there may always be. As my boys get older and we read about the drafts of various wars I long for peace in the world. I don't know how I could have faced some of these historical days without the Christian hope.
This week in history we learned about the presidents that came after the assassination of Kennedy and the war in Vietnam.
