I am a big fan of history, and I read a lot about history. The reason I think today could be a very important day in history is because of this news. You might think that's no big deal, we are far away from China and its politics. I bet a lot of people had the same thought in 44BC.
I saw some messages flying around in Wechat about the news last night. I didn't believe it, although I had predicted at 2 years ago. I still have the chatting records I said this would happen 2 years ago (28th Feb 2016 8pm). I guess I didn't expect it to happen so fast.
This morning, the news was everywhere. It is true, no longer just rumours. The first thing I could think of in history was Julius Caesar and SPQR. I don't want to discuss the politics around the news, or predict what will happen next. I am more interested in when Caesar declare he would rule in his lifetime, what were the people in Rome and other lands thinking. Like in the Germanic tribes, did they just think that's no big deal? A decision made by one of the most powerful persons in the world will affect everyone, that's what I am thinking.
I will leave the post here to mark the day, and see how history will unfold in the future.
