As students of history, whether it is American or World History, it is our responsibility to learn about the mistakes of the past so that they are not repeated. Encourage your child to read the newspaper and to use the internet responsibly to find out what is going on in the world. By studying the past and applying those lessons to the present, we will ensure a prosperous future. Knowledge truly is power!

"It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped. Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance." - Robert F. Kennedy, 1966
