Lessons from History

The most that people remember

From history,

Is the bloody wars of Kings and

Strangers.

These fights and quarrels never seem

To touch on real life.

But history is not just about

Fighting.

It can also be about struggling

Against adversity.

Putting yourself out on a limb

And eventually winning.

Early rulers rose up from

Nothing,

They had to stick to things,

Persist.

Keep going even when others

Thought that they were mad.

That is a lesson from

History.

To keep on seeking what you

Desire.

To hold on for glory against

Great odds.

Then you can succeed, just

As the Kings did.

True enough, and (as you make clear) it's certainly not all about kings, either. Harriet Tubman of Underground Railroad fame, for instance. Or a close family friend who died in 1962...after running away from home at the age of 12, becoming a world renowned rodeo cowboy and later a rodeo stock contractor.

The list is endless.

Voted Up and Useful.

That's right Ghost32, it's not all about monarchs only. Wars and conflict may have decided numerous turn of events in world history but there are many instances and examples of deeds, decisions and efforts aimed at making life better that didn't involve conquest or war. The list is indeed endless.

Thanks for the vote up and for your comments.
