In schools, students are taught about how people evolved, how things were first made and about the history of our world. However, I believe that learning about the past has no value for those of us living in the present. The past will always remain as the past, and looking back into it will not change our lives or make it any better. What is important is the present.
In addition, thinking about the past can affect people pejoratively. Whenever I think about my past, all I do is regret.
