Who is the History Ninja?

History is anything that happened before this moment. You have ancient history, medieval history, American history, even current history. You can pretty much put any word before the word history and it will make sense.

Ninjas throughout time were the guys (and gals) who did the dirty work. They weren’t honorable enough to be samurai so they hid their identities behind a mask. They crept around at night in all black waiting for the right moment to strike.

So what is a history ninja? Well, at this moment, particularly in the United States, our history is being portrayed as something that should be hidden away as if we should be ashamed of it. Statues are being torn down, movies are being edited and books are being burned.

I think that history and ninjas have gotten a bad rap. So, the History Ninja and I are going to try to change that. We’re here to shine a new light on history. To bring it into today’s world and show that even though it isn’t always pretty, it is still relevant; and more importantly, we can learn from it. We can use it as a tool to insure that we don’t repeat the mistakes of the past.

So, as current events unfold, The History Ninja will sneak through history and find some stories or events or people that can add some wisdom and perspective in order to understand what’s happening and how we can move forward. My hope is that you not only learn something about history but that you also understand today better and most of all, make the future better than the past.
