What it takes to change the course of history radically

Our own history is a record of the development, the changes, the discoveries, the achievements, the battles and setbacks, as well as the victories, in our lives. We may not record our personal history in document form. It may be only a record of memory. Whatever the case, history shows us something important. It shows the evolution of thought. We should remember this point, particularly when we're faced with long-standing difficulties.

Maybe there is a conflict between relatives. A history of poor performance at work or school. There might be a situation similar to that of a friend I spoke with recently. Many years ago he and his wife moved into a neighborhood not too far from a university. They soon discovered it was a neighborhood with a long history of late-night parties and too much noise. My friend commented, however, that lately he has noticed a change—there has been a steady decline in the noise level. Concurrently, there have been changes in administration policies at the university, as well as changes in the attitude and behavior of many of the students.
