"Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, And sorry I could not travel both And be one traveler, long I stood And looked down one as far as I could To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair, And having perhaps the better claim, Because it was grassy and wanted wear; Though as for that the passing there Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay In leaves no step had trodden black. Oh, I kept the first for another day! Yet knowing how way leads on to way, I doubted if I should ever come back."

- Robert Frost

The world is one of the most unique places on Earth. Why we must ask? Well, just think about it. Us people are all different. We all have a background of culture, traditions, ethnicities, and rituals that make us our own. At the same time, we may believe that we are the only person on planet Earth who has these characteristics but in the end, all, each person is intertwined whether you want to believe it or not. Back then, the world was populated with not nearly as many people present in today's society.

The Migration Of Time

Even though this was this case, the cultures we have today have been brewing since the begging of it all. Our ancestors were clueless, they had no idea what they were doing or what the world had to offer. They just did what they believed was best. No one knew that people existed on other continents or if there was life outside their own. Instead, our ancestors had to teach themselves how to live a life they believed they deserved. They had to explore on their own and figure out how to live to the best of their ability. Sickness was always brewing, times were always tough but the adventure never stopped.

After years of exploration and commitment to making a better life for there families and tribes, the unknown was found. Did they enjoy walking for thousands of miles trekking through harsh terrains with barely enough food and water to survive? Probably not but in the end all they did it. Our ancestors were able to accomplish the impossible. Making a better life for themselves. While time passed and people adjusted to the new areas that were found, advancements began. Agriculture improved. Communication flourished. Cures to diseases were in the making.

Life was about to change for the better. As we are in the present day, our lives can't compare to what our ancestors dealt with. Honestly, we have it pretty easy. We have cars that get us from place to place. Phones to communicate and take pictures that will snap memories into time. Our lives were set up for us by our ancestors. Now imagine if we were the first people to exist. What would we do? Being that we heavily rely on technology, transportation, and the present, the likelihood of us being able to survive back then is slim to none, which is why we need to learn to be thankful for our ancestors and the people who came before us.

Without them, our lives wouldn't be nearly as easy. Difficulties we have now would be ten times worse than they are. Diseases wouldn't have cures. Technology wouldn't exist. Life would be completely different. So next time we decide to not appreciate what we have, just remember what our ancestors went through. Be thankful for what they did for the world to be where it is now. Also, remember that we are the ones who are setting up the future for the people who come after us. We are a part of the migration of time.
