My husband and I have been binge watching the Tudors on Netflix the past few nights.
I have started googling the wives and children of Henry VIII, to see what was going to happen next and find out how close to real history the show is. How interesting! We really did not learn much European history growing up in the US, but watching shows like this and Jamestown and even Vikings has opened my eyes to the fact that I am not really very happy to admit that our white ancestors have always been the bad and evil in this world.
From Vikings, to all the shows about royalty, early settlers in America…scary. Not learning all this in school did not do us any favors. They say we must learn from the past mistakes but how is that possible if so much of the history of Europe is not taught to Americans, it is after all part of our history as America as it is today was founded by people fleeing Europe for religious persecution.
Fast forward to today and look how we are repeating history.
I hope you will take a look at some of the historical television shows that are now out there and contemplate where we are now so that we can BE THE CHANGE that is so drastically needed today.
