History Everywhere

We had 36 hours in Rome at the end of our Italy trip, so we walked the city from one end to the other.

Around every corner was a building built hundreds of years ago, or remnants that dated back more than 2,000 years.

Standing in these historic settings I was struck by how much about humanity really hasn’t changed.  Petty leaders still use external trappings to prop themselves up, grab power, and use war to build empires.

The coliseum, is perhaps the best example with much of its construction funded by the successful campaigns in Judea.
