Exploring past places and events can be very exciting and definitely educational. We can expand what we know and experience a small piece of the legacies left from those that came before us. But make no mistake history is not over and we ourselves can leave our own history for those that follow us.
I believe in the need to record our journeys through life so our legacies can be passed on. If it weren't for the journals left behind we wouldn't have the history experiences that we have. And now with the technology we have today, the ability to record our experiences are even easier and more far reaching. We just have to hope that the whole internet doesn't collapse and all our important records we have stored on the cloud are not lost forever....maybe we should invest in a few "old fashion" journals.
