History is a never ending story that everyone is a part of. Every day is another page of life that someone will uncover in the future. I myself love reading the pages of others lives. If I could be anything I wanted to be and earn a living, I would choose an archeologist. Archeologists have the opportunity to change the world every day. Being an archeologist would give me a way to dive into the past and discover things that no one has ever known. There have been so many amazing and fascinating people that have lived before us. The world today is still missing so much information that history can bring us.
The world today has already used history to it’s advantage to make advancements. Archeologists have found ways to advance medicine, language, architecture, and much more. I have always dreamed of being an archeologist. Going to school is the first step in fulfilling this dream. If the world knew more about history and the people that have lived before us, so many things could change for the better. I am a firm believer in the theory that history repeats itself and having the knowledge of the past would give everyone the ability to avoid repeating mistakes.
Many people think that they can change the world by doing things for others but why can we not try to change it by giving others the knowledge they need to help us do it together.
