“If studying history always makes you feel proud and happy, you probably aren’t studying history”

A saying about studying history was posted on Twitter by Librarianshipwreck on September 17, 2020:
 
“Studying history will sometimes make you uncomfortable.
Studying history will sometimes make you feel deeply upset.
Studying history will sometimes make you feel extremely angry.
If studying history always makes you feel proud and happy, you probably aren’t studying history.”

   
The last line is often stated alone.

As a history graduate, I approve of this message.

To keep Texas the best state in the nation, we can never forget WHY our state is so exceptional.
I signed a law establishing the 1836 project, which promotes patriotic education & ensures future generations understand TX values.
Together, we’ll keep our rich history alive.

I co-sponsored legislation that would prohibit the use of federal funds to teach the 1619 Project in K-12 schools. Tax dollars should not go towards promoting radical ideologies meant to divide us instead of being used to promote principles that unite us.
