I am Kathy Warnes, and all of my life I have believed that history is more about people than dates, presidents and wars. Things that I firmly believe about history include:
History is relevant. It needs to be studied to give people a sense of where their lives fit into historical context, to give them a sense of belonging and connection to the human family, and to visualize what their own lives can mean to history.
Many of us are as Michael Crichton puts it, “temporal provincials.” Some people think that our own time is the only important, relevant time, and this attitude limits our spiritual and intellectual growth. History can show us all that stripped of 21st century technological trappings and attitudes, human nature has been consistent throughout history.
I already have a history website on Weebly called History? Because It's Here!, but I decided that World History deserves a website of its own. I believe that local, regional, American and World History all fit together like a jigsaw puzzle, but putting them all on one website would create another world wide web, so I am trying to organize them in a way that is easy to navigate..
I want to welcome you and encourage you to explore my history websites and make return visits because I am constantly posting new material. I also welcome your comments at: firstname.lastname@example.org
