Greek Mythology

What is Greek mythology?

Greek mythology, in brief, is an entertaining set of tales (of Gods, villains and valiant figures) which the people of Ancient Greece believed in. The tales were ways in which the Greeks would make sense of a wide range of things (for example: traditions). Some of the Gods which feature in these tales are as follows: Zeus, Hera, Apollo, Hermes, Athena and Aphrodite. Although, societies around the world have advanced a lot since the time when people would believe in these tales, they are still very relevant to the present age. This is because the tales present immortal figures (or Gods) as figures who are not extremely different from mortal figures (or human beings): they are fearless and sharp plus they make mistakes and win wars.

How George H.W. Bush Made An Impact

George H. W. Bush recently passed away at the age of ninety-four. Bush had served in World War II and as the US Ambassador to the United Nations before succeeding Ronald Reagan as the President of the United States of America.

In my outlook, although, George was President of the country for only four years (1989-1993), he had heavily impacted the pages of history because of his involvement in the Gulf War. The Gulf War, which had begun in the year 1990, was an operation spearheaded by the United States to halt Iraq from taking over Kuwait; Iraq, at the time, was led by Saddam Hussein.

The United States was assisted in this operation by more than thirty countries, inclusive of the United Kingdom and France. But sadly, in spite of the fact that the operation proved to be a success, George was not elected back in 1994; as a result of having garnered a poor performance in handling affairs at home, George was succeeded by Bill Clinton as the President of the United States.
