Cause and Effect
Throughout our study of history, one thing always remains constant - Cause and Effect. As we have often discussed in class, history does not happen in a vacuum. Every single event, from the "Big Bang" to more recent events such as 9/11, had a beginning and something caused that event to happen. Not only did something cause the event to happen, the event had an effect. All of you are completely familiar with the concept of.... wait for it.... get ready.... "RIPPLES!!" We discussed the grain of sand effect (almost unnoticeable ripple effect) to the bolder (very large ripple!) within the "pool" of time and history. This week, we are going to look at the "bolder effects" on history.
TOPIC: What event in history do you think has had the greatest impact on mankind? Why?
