NiE - Historic Happenings

We live in the present and plan for the future. History is the study of the past so why bother with what has been? Anything from the past is outdated and irrelevant to us, right? Wrong! History is in fact very useful because it provides us with a real grasp of how our world works. It connects us to where we live, the achievements and failures, the heroes and villains, the ideals and aspirations. History can give us answers to existing problems. Even Hollywood recognizes the power and importance of history. Think of all the movies made that are based on events of the past.
