Welcome to Day Twenty-Nine of Just Jot It January, where the theme is: “history.”
History will teach us nothing….
That’s the first thing that popped into my head when I read today’s prompt.
The second thing was the fact that I’m currently listening to Alexander Hamilton, the comprehensive biography by historian Ron Chernow, and the book upon which Hamilton: An American Musical was based. Listening to the early years of our nation, it’s impossible not to draw certain parallels to our current reality, which will, one day, be history, as well.
The third thing is that today is an interesting day in my personal history, as well, as it’s my half-birthday. I stand poised on the point of being halfway through my forty-eighth year.
And that’s about all I have to say about history, so…I’m history!
