National Day on Writing

How does writing help you connect?

It connects the years together by showing the history of the past. 20 years ago some people are still alive but 1,000 years ago all the people are dead and gone. There is no way to know how it was back then. Only but so much can be left behind. Objects don't show detail about how life was if all the people are dead. The writing of the people 1,000 years ago shows the details, feelings, and way of living. To go even further the writing of ancient civilizations can show what happened during those times. It might be harder to translate and understand but that is a major connection to history. The many different time periods you can visit just by reading what was left behind. To the walls of an ancient ruins to the pages of a lost journal all share some history. With out these ancient writings the past would be lost.
