Et tu, Brute?

the day started out just like any other in the republic of Rome.but Caesar’s serene morning is interrupted by his wife’s warnings.”my lord,please stay at home.i had visions of you soaked in blood…”but Caesar’s best friend,brute convinces him to come.Caesar headed to the senate,were  the conspirators gathered round him,as if to pay their respects.

”my lord,please stay at home.i had visions of you soaked in blood…”

Tillius Cimber,who was the head of  this conspiracy came forward as if to question him.Caesar,with a gesture told him to wait for another time.Cimber caught his toga by both soldiers.Caesar then called out “why,this is violence!”.Gaius Casca then stabbed Caesar just below his throat.Caesar caught Casca’s arm and ran it through with his stylus,and tried to leap to his feet.But he was stopped by another wound.when he saw there were daggers on all sides of him,he muffled his head in his robe and drew down his lap to his feet,to fall more decently.he was stabbed with 3 and 20 wounds,and yet he uttered no sound except a mere groan at the first strike and the legendary words-et  tu,brute

you have probably all heard this story,albeit some details.this story is just another chapter in history,heard a million times,never effecting our daily lives.

“but there is something deeper in this story,a new dimension hardly attributed it.”

but there is something deeper in this story,a new dimension hardly attributed it.if we look anywhere,at any story,there is always something deeper inside it,a lesson that can affect our lives forever.

there are many life lessons that can be learned from this historic story.i hope to present a few of them to you.

so i present to you the et tu,brute series to hopefully be continued over the course of the next few weeks.
