Please take a 10 minute coffee break to watch this video – 100 years in 10 minutes, covering 1911 through 2011. Most folks will recognize the events listed; what I found fascinating was to see unrelated and world-wide events documented in chronological order. Sadly, this rendition of history rather heavily focuses on events that chronicle man’s inhumanity to man (that is, events of war), and the effects of significant natural disasters. There are only a few events of optimism and humanity: Lindbergh, Einstein, Ghandi, the fall of the Berlin Wall and space exploration events. Nevertheless, it is a very worthwhile summary of recent history.
