It was only 100 years ago when there were no planes, cars, computers, machines, or anything in that nature. People had to do the work by hand, and it was a bad time in American history. Almost 100 years ago, World War 1 took its form. We have a lot to be thankful for since we are no longer fighting World Wars, we have our technology, and everyone is getting fair treatment. As we move forward, we must also remember the ugly past and prevent those same disasters from occurring in the future.
