History is important to us because it is the heritage that

shaped the world we live in today. What we do today will be part of

history in the future.

It is mainly important because it helps us to understand the

world, and how it became what we see today. It can help us to solve

problems that we face today by seeing the solutions that were tried

in the past. We must learn from mistakes that were made before us,

so that we do not repeat them.

So that you can help to aviod repeating its mistakes.

History is important because human behavior tends to follow

relatively predictable patterns over long periods of time. By

studying these past patterns and behaviors we can work to make sure

we do not make the same mistakes and help to make the word a better

place. History is important so that future generations will

understand the sacrifices that were made for them.

History also teaches about problems that we had too.

Studying and understanding history is a great asset for people

to observe how the past affects modern times. The history studied

can be of events a few years ago to events of thousands of years

ago. As an example, anyone who is puzzled by the activities of the

US Federal government, can get a better grasp of current events by

understanding how the US Constitution was created and why it was

created.Understanding history can reveal why Japan, a strong

economic power, is not a strong military power. A study of World

War Two will reveal most of the answers to that question.
