a lesson from history.

today while sitting in class i had a realization.
history becomes really interesting when you remember those you are learning about were real people.
they lived.
they had trials, happy times and worries just like us.
we talked about the peasant children having the opportunity to go to school.
i wonder if they got excited how i do before the first day of school.
i wonder if they appreciated what they were learning or got bored.
i wonder if they hated doing homework.
it comes to life when you realize these people were real.
they loved, they laughed, and they lived.
