Since the beginning of time, we as people have advanced. From slavery to an African American president. From living in a cave to living in a house. From the use of feet to the ability to fly. From leaves covering our bottoms to T-shirts covering up our tops. From hunting our food to having a wide variety of choices in your local grocery store. No matter how you view the world, we as a civilization in American have come a long way from when we first started out.
