History

A Life without History is meaningless.

An intriguing question one can have in mind is, how can life be meaningful without History? Some people think in most cases that history concerns only about the study of the past facts yet its pertinent to note that history is made lived and detected.

Born and given life one has to know and get in touch with her/his history about the birth date. As for adventurous lovers, one to travel has to verify with proper documents like passports that portrays the historical information.

Imagine working in an organization where, the director has not kept any of the workers’ document to verify that his/her employee, has ever been working in her organization., no CV , no letter of application archived, no record whatsoever. Is it not a meaningless life without history?

As it may sound so ancient, some old people would be asked of their dates of birth, and would simply describe such meaningful date in life by the use of events. For instance, I was born when Mwl. Julius Nyerere became a president, during the Maji Maji war, or even during the First World War. Although this marks an era of oral tradition, people saw and new the importance and meaning of history in life and therefore made it so interesting to keep records a key to meaningful life.

According to different fields of studies depend entirely on what history was, what it is and what it will be. Imagine in geography we talk of volcanic eruption, its occurrence and perhaps its re-occurrence in any volcanic land, without forgetting that this is part of history making life meaningful. A lot of discoveries have been made for many years ago, still are being made and many more will be yet to be discovered only making life interesting and meaningful !What an incredible meaning history does in our life!!

A wonder of how life without history can be meaningless catches our glimpse in critical thinking, reflection, analyzing , synthesizing , making an appreciative inquiry ( evaluation) and comprehensively trying to understand that , we make history, live and detect it. In all these, an impressive and meaningful life should be planned, created and worked for knowing that when history is made , it may not be reversible .Enjoy history ,see history in daily realities by critically looking at issues of life, interpret all the events in your life make good judgment and you will live a deeper and meaningful life of your own History.
