If my hometown got bombed I would go out side and watch the fireworks!!! (just kidding) actually I would be frightened out of my witts to say the least. I would be scared to death. But after a while I guess I would get use to it. How about you?

If my home town was getting bobmbarded, well the first time it happened, yes I probobly would get very scared and confused! And if it kept happening, my family would most likely figure out some sort of way to defend ourselfs and deal with it

History Quotes

We can learn from history how past generations thought and acted, how they responded to the demands of their time and how they solved their problems. We can learn by analogy, not by example, for our circumstances will always be different than theirs were. The main thing history can teach us is that human actions have consequences and that certain choices, once made, cannot be undone. They foreclose the possibility of making other choices and thus they determine future events.
-Gerda Lerner

History, we can confidently assert, is useful in the sense that art and music, poetry and flowers, religion and philosophy are useful. Without it -- as with these -- life would be poorer and meaner; without it we should be denied some of those intellectual and moral experiences which give meaning and richness to life. Surely it is no accident that the study of history has been the solace of many of the noblest minds of every generation.
-Henry Steele Commager

Few will have the greatness to bend history itself; but each of us can work to change a small portion of events, and in the total of all those acts will be written the history of this generation.
-Robert F. Kennedy
