[I] had the opportunity to spend a couple of days in the city by the bay, San Francisco. This time, I figured I would do something a bit different.
I had originally planned to visit the Golden Gate bridge and do the virtual bridge climb, but my plans changed.
On the flight out, I heard about a limited-time display of China’s Terracotta Warriors at the Asian Art Museum.
Since I love history and learning about new cultures, I thought it would be a great place to spend some time.
I think it’s amazing to see how people lived thousands of years ago lived.
While innovations and inventions have certainly elevated the way we live today, people have changed very little. We still share the fears, the doubts, the love, the aspirations of those who came before us.
The more I learn about past cultures, the more I see how alike we are.
- We all want to love and be loved. History is filled with countless examples of the love we have for another.
- We have jealousy and anger issues. Wars are usually started because of anger and jealousy.
- We have all fears. china’s terracotta warriors were designed to be used in the afterlife for the First Emperor, Qin Shihuang (259-210 BCE)
These are just a few examples, what are your observations from learning about past cultures?
