history is important is because we share a common

experience which binds us together as a country, society, and people. We can

relate with our neighbors, peers, or even someone off the street. We often

share the same hardships or happiness as these other people. If we didn't have

The third reason history is an important factor in our life is because our

minds are store our experiences. Everyone is born with a part in the brain that

stores all of the history that you see, hear, and feel. If we didn't have history, it

time; it's the first time you touch the sand, see waves crashing, or feel the cool

salty breeze against your face.

That is an experience that will stay with you for

the rest of your life. If you didn't have history or memory then every time you go

somewhere it would be like the first time since you don't remember, and you

would not have experience in life.

The fourth reason history is important is because society can build upon

past accomplishments with out having to re-achieve them. We as people make

inventions and discoveries. If there were no history then people would not be

able to maintain a language since they do not have a memory, and since they

don't have a memory they cant store the information(words). People learn from

their mistakes, and build upon other peoples advancements in order to make

living easier and more comfortable. We need history to help us live a better life.
