103 I concede with the speaker that the study of history is relevant to our daily lives. History can guide our lives today in some way. Nevertheless, they are not merely related to daily lives, they meet the needs of future generations. In my view, the study of history is not only relevant to our daily lives, but also has close connections with future generations.

The study of history is close to our daily life. After all, history is similar to current life today under some circumstances and thus it is able to guide life today. Nowadays, historians pay great attention to the study of rise and fall of Chinese dynasties in the past, which bring great guidance to the leaders. The destruction of all categories of dynasties teaches them how to found a solid government and how to treat their citizens. Two typical reasons of the destruction are as follows. One is that the monarchies did not know how to use their success after attaining it. Some of them were just satisfied with their life at that time and they did not want to improve it any more. Others did not want to move at all and they merely enjoyed the throne that was passed down from generation to generation. Even cruel, like Napoleon, he did not focus on the quality of his citizens, but in turn declare wars which ruined people's quiet lives and were great adversities to them and he even dreamt of conquering the whole Europe. The other reason is the obvious graduation among people, which formed the inequity and discrimination among people. The analyses teach leaders today to treat their people equally and to try their best to focus more on improving people's lives and solving living difficulties. It illustrates that the study of history is quite important and vital to daily lives today.

However, the extent is not just limited to lives today. If so, then why so many historians today pay so much attention to the study and regard it as the most worthy thing of their whole lives? Considering the cost and energy devoted to it, the extent has been greatly expanded.

The study of history also necessarily meets the need of future generations. The history is not only in the past. Moreover, it is even quite vital to people in the future. The study of Queen Elizabeth I teaches certain people how to develop and support arts of a country. She was quite correctly called a friend of the arts for she kept providing patronage to young artists at that time. She also prompted Naissance in Europe which was a ideological liberation of human beings' thoughts and confirmed the value and creativity of human beings. Queen Elizabeth I told us that one of the decisive factors to judge the prosperity of a country was the preservation and expansion of arts. Arts can not only improve the quality of lives but also improve people's mental health to a higher level. Thus, we say that to develop arts contains great importance to the needs of future generations for arts adequately caters the development of individuals and makes them self-assured and it is one of the determined elements to develop our country as well.

In conclusion, the study of history is both related to our daily lives and the needs of future generations. Thus, studying history has great importance not only to today but also to the future. The government should allocate adequate money and devote energy and passion to the study, which can bring brightness to the whole society and the world.

51 The author recommends that all patients who are diagnosed with muscle stain take antibiotics as part of their treatment according to the proved hypothesis that antibiotics help to quicken the recuperation time after secondary infections.
