One place you can see the ruins of generations of civilization is the Forum in Rome. As governments toppled, so did the elaborate buildings.
The Forum gives you a long view of history. You can’t help but think about how fleeting each era really was. And how much each had to give. Just look around at the intricate designs, chiseled by long-forgotten artists.
The chaos of all the little pieces of Roman achievements lying askew causes you to think about war and peace. What really matters? What will last? What will remain standing when time erodes great accomplishments?
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace…
