In Ancient Rome they had a philosophy that "even in a bad situation they would except their situation and not complain about it". Today we have philosophers that come up with ideas such as this one this shows that we are very much connected to Anceint Rome.
The Romans had a language called Latin, Latin is related to English because English has many Latin terms in it. Today we use Roman numerals, and all of our months are in Latin.
Today we have whats called a justice system, the justice system decides if a criminal is guilty of a crime in other words they bring people to justice. The Romans had this to because they had what is called a republic. A republic has a government a justice system and a leader that leads for a certain amount of time.
Just like the Romans we vote for are leader, but we have been having trouble with voting. Some states are making voting harder for others, they are especially targeting women, young people and Latinos, African Americans and other people of color. This is not okay because everyone should have a right to vote because every vote counts. Citizenship is very important so everyone should participate.
The White House is a good example because it uses pillars. Rome used pillars in their architecture to help support the building. Now we have used this technique on many government buildings this shows that the Romans influenced our architecture.
The Jefferson Memorial was a good choice because it uses one of the main types of architecture fo Rome. In Rome they created buildings that had domed roofs. Today we still use this type of architecture, this shows that we have addopted building techniques from Rome.
The Romans created statues that were made to look very realistic. They barrowed this technique from the Greeks. Today we still make statues in this way. I chose this artical on the Lincon Memorial because the sculpture of Lincon is done in this way.
Murals were used to decorate peoples homes to make them a more interesting. The Romans had painters come to their homes and paint Murals for a fee. People still do that today, we can have companies create Murals for our homes. This shows that Roman art is still created and that their technique has been passed on so that our society can use it.
