In Grayson and Tangun’s cosmological piece, many gods attempted to bring to rise prosperous communities, but they tended to fall. Within the next two articles, these nations began to thrive as their inhabitants embraced a true sense of community. The concept that stood out and interested me the most was that people thousands of years ago, if not longer, had the same dream of a community that we strive to achieve today. Even when the ancient communities discussed in the article did not come to fruition, they refused to give up. As these communities finally started together, even when the government and politics found their places within them, people gradually understood how to have a successful nation. These citizens felt pride in their heritage, which increased the connection of these people. Most of our nations today have been thousands of years in the making, and their people today show the amazing progress in their national appreciation and through the united works of the government.
