9/11 was a horrible tragedy for so many, but also really encouraging to remember the incredible acts of bravery and effort put in so many that day. With mixed feelings it helped me reflect on the importance of perspective.
I'm going to talk a bit about Respecting History. he lives, freedoms, and opportunities we have are all because other people sacrificed to make it that way. History has an interesting way of reminding you of the bigger picture and your place in the world.
The first step to respecting history is to learn it . This can be through documentaries, books, streaming interviews, or however you prefer to consume content. Becoming informed on the different phases that shaped our world is a huge step in appreciating the life that you have.
Not only is it important to respect history in a classic sense, but it is also important in a familiar sense. Knowing your family history helps you understand the reasons why certain family members are the way they are, which will help you immensely when building relationships and connecting with them. The best way to learn about your family history is to just ask.
All in all, understanding and appreciating history adds a scope and perspective to your life that is really humbling. Take a moment today to appreciate the things that had to happen to get you to where you are today.
