Tomorrow in Chicago, the year 2013 will belong to history. That will make it a special year to analyze, judge and learn from. 2014 makes its debut at the same time. The New Year is always filled with hope, more so if the past is explored.
Why is Chicago history important? If persons, events and places are examined, Chicagoans gain an understanding of their city. They can realize its relevance to the state and nation. They can discover where they are going because they know how they began.
Historical persons help Chicagoans who study their biographies. Their lifetimes of activity reveal their purposes, goals, actions and the outcomes for everyone. The entire process of any activity or decision is available for scrutiny. This wealth of information can assist anyone humble enough to learn from it.
The events of history, both good and bad, repeat themselves if they are investigated. Chicagoans want successful events to be repeated, and they will be if they are studied. Bad events need to be examined candidly so they can be avoided.
Sites or places in Chicago need to be explored because their condition reveals the future of the city. One stressed community drains the resources of the entire city. History reveals how communities changed during the course of time and aids in finding solutions to problems.
If Chicagoans want the best for their city, they need to study history for the solutions to any challenge. Persons, events and places provide a wealth of information to the present generation. Since history reveals an entire process of an action from beginning to end, it is valuable to everyone humble enough learn from it.
Happy New Year to all who love Chicago history!
