When I study and teach about the past and what I impart to my students is the power of one. Mine is a belief that the only way to make change in the past or in the present is through a collection of individual efforts. History does not repeat itself. The context is always different and the players always unique. There are universals that provide lessons, but there is enough uniqueness to allow for individual initiative to bring about creative solutions. We can learn from this dynamic and in my classroom we do.
