History and You, March 5, 2013
Listen to my show, and only then will you know the value of language through the kind of communication we all have with one another. Language is a beautiful form of expression, but it can also be just as much provocative and conflictive as it can be peaceful: it’s our choice to do with it what we think is best. But if language is our predominant form of communication, that is, the one form or method we use the most to communicate, then why do we continue to have so much trouble with it? Why do we have so many problems communicating ideas and messages to one another? Is it a lack of vocabulary, a lack of structure or organization, or simply a lack of thought and disregard? The intention of peace, beauty, or conflict lurks behind our speech, and depending on the speech we use will determine the outcome we decide to live with, and the consequences we will surely face. So think well before you speak my friends, for tomorrow is promised to no one. So stop making excuses and listen to the show!
Capturing the importance of the individual and how the past can put you in a position to make a difference in the present. History, as we have come to know it, is a collage of choices made, created, and driven by all of us. Our understanding of it only helps to measure how far and with what level of sophistication we can see the world and our individual place in it.
The individual, the everyday hero, who wakes up to work his day and returns home at the end of that work, is the focus of this show. People today live in an environment they seldom know because so little is known about history. Therefore, the variety of topics and history surrounding everyday people will be made current and relevant through insightful discussions. Topics for the show will include, but are not limited to, an informed and considered view of:
• Art and Culture
• Philosophy and Religion
• Ethnicity and National Identity
• Science and Technology
• Social and Cultural Issues
In short, the show will delve into the issues of human nature and how history can assist us to better understand and cope with these issues in our modern day world. With visits from professional guest speakers, as well as "call-ins" and emails from folks contributing their insights to the discussion, the show aims to provide the public with thought-provoking moments about the quality of life we are currently living and how to contend with it.
