From the beginning of mankind, there have been numerous historical events that deserve both our admiration and the public dispute. The political leaders may not always have taken the right decision in a given situation, as humans generally act as their reason dictates them. Therefore, depending on their personality and intellectual capacities, the great leaders of the world are now beloved heroes of human history or contested characters.
The young people nowadays seem to have a very strange understanding of the historic events that have shaped the world we are now living in. They do not seem to thoroughly grasp the political, social or religious circumstances that have determined many of the actions of the past. In fact they do not care to much about their
history! The main reason for this is the fact that, in a world of computers and television, there are only few young people to dedicate their spare time to reading and analyzing the history of mankind. We cannot entirely blame them for this, as their parents are the ones to encourage them to make contact with certain fields. And if parents did nothing until a certain age was reached, there is no chance in the world to chance the habits of a teenager. The young people tend to contest the old because of a poor understanding of the political context certain events took place in.
The only thing the young admire is the architectural achievements of our ancestors. Could it be due to the fact that these are real things, which they can see and touch even in the present days? I believe this is a good reason for teenagers to start researching the history of the architectural accomplishments that the lost civilizations have left for the eternity. Just think about the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, those seven remarkable constructions of classical antiquity! They will most certainly attract the admiration of many generations to come. People say that nothing lasts forever, but these ones did!
Well, at least there is something regarding history that any teenager has heard about! The only thing we can do is hope that the school and the parents will eventually revive the interest in history in their children!
