The Essence of History

“The history guides people to succeed tomorrow”

History is the most accurate and profound basis of the past. The context of history is either good or bad because of life changing events that happened. But, what is the true meaning of history? How do you consider an event as history? How important is history?

What is history?

If you would ask a person on what is the first thing that comes into their mind when they hear the word history they would say it is about the untold stories on how the world is created and others would have their point of view about the heroes and the villains like the four fathers of America, Adolf Hitler or even Chairman Mao of the west. If you would look deeper, history is broad yet deep that binds the core existence of the world. Hence, history keeps the records of events that happened.

How do you consider an event as history?

A lot of people only know the great events that happened in the past and they consider it as a history. But, few people know that history has many aspects.

There are two kinds of history, the documented and the undocumented. These two differs on the kind of approach from people. Documented histories are seen on books, libraries and other medium whereas the undocumented are those events that have no evidence like storytelling, legends and more.

But, all in all you can consider anything as history if it is memorable to any person because history are memories and lessons that happened in the past that can be a guide or be taught by elders to the next generations.

Importance of history:

History is a lesson in the past but can also be the greatest regret of the future. Yet the reason why there is history is because of the events that were created by man. Either good or bad, history is very important because it taught people the right things to do in order to avoid mistakes and regrets.

The reason why there are so many blunders in history is because people never learn from the mistakes they’ve done in the past. Hence history always remains as a reminder for us people and share the events that happened in this present time to the next generation.
