“History = His Story”

The word history, if you think about it, can be looked at as “His story”.  I believe history did come from”His story”.  People who believe in that theory mostly say it started from the story of Jesus Christ, therefore it was “His story”. That actually makes sense.

There is ‘herstory’ now though which is written from a women’s point of view.  That makes me realize that most, or even all, of the world’s history is written in males’ point of views.  Coming up with herstory doesn’t seem that necessary, but it is important to see from all perspectives.  The word history I think can remain but that does not mean women should write their stories too.

People are more open-minded nowadays and there are many ways to get your side of the story heard.  You can start by telling people who can tell more people; that’s how rumours spread.  Or write to the newspaper, government officials, etc.   There also media sources, for example the news and interviews, that give people a chance to talk.

All those opportunities show that some people have an open ear.  I’m one of those people who believe all people involved, in whatever the subject, should be heard for more accuracy and understanding of the story.  Then our history would be much more detailed and honest.
