Here’s this bit of truth from p. 245 of my middle school World History textbook:
That’s right kids.
Some people eat ice cream cones. Other people play the piano. Some people are murdered.
Look at that guy. He looks like a 14th century European peasant to me. Probably named Roland or some crap like that. Did he deserve to get murdered? Probably not. Just in the wrong place at the wrong time. Now there’s maggots all over him.
That’s history for you. That’s life.
What do you think he thought that morning when he pulled on his green tunic with yellow polka dots? “Well sure, this isn’t the most fashionable outfit I’ve got, but it’s only Sunday. I probably won’t even leave the house today.”
How’d that turn out for him? Now he’s dead. Think about that next time you get dressed.
Welcome to World History class.
