Blogging Time...

Chapters 16-18 provided much information about significant, life-changing historical events. It's interesting to learn more about black rights, the rise of industries, and immigration. More importantly, it is important to understand how there are various viewpoints on all of these subjects, as people look at and interpret history in different ways. I also enjoyed our first secondary reading assignment, which talked about the history of firefighting. It is amazing to see how firefighting has changed through the times, but is still based on the same passion and sacrifice. My cousin is a volunteer firefighter and he has told me some about his work. It is great to hear about his experiences. They produce a greater awareness of the sacrifices that firefighters do for our society. Well, off to study a little bit more for our first test tomorrow.
