WHAT’S IT ALL ABOUT?
I love to tell stories! Often I find a great story in history. I think a lot about people in history, and the statues created for them. Why or why not does an historical figure have a statue in our community? I think carefully about the significance of the person, and the cause-and-effect of their lives on the present day. Sometimes, when bringing a story to life, I enrich facts with highlighted details, I omit some details, and emphasize facts which support my perspective. When researching, I think carefully about information sources. What does the author want me to think? Here are some sources so that you can follow the history trail.
