I think that it’s about time that I learn more about history. It was a subject I loved in school, but one that I took for granted as I got older. I knew that history was repeating itself, but I had thought that it didn’t matter how informed I was.
I was living in my own privilege and I acknowledge it. Now, I am taking all the time I can to learn, become informed, and make sure that I am making sure that history doesn’t repeat itself. I am forever regretful of my naiveness.
So with that being said, I have started to watch more of The History Channel and documentaries in order to learn about the world around me. The channel has a three episode series – America: Our Defining Hours! coming up. It will explore the Mayflower, The American Civil War, and the events of September 11, to show how those events shaped the country.
America: Our Defining Hours airs on the History Channel Sunday, July 5, at 9 p.m. ET/8 p.m. CT with additional episodes airing on July 12 and July 19. Will you be watching?
