Noong unang panahon ay may nakatirang mag-asawa sa Iloilo. May pito silang anak na pawing mga dalaga. Dahil sa likas na magaganda at mababait, marami ang nagkakagusto at nag-aanyaya sa mga dalaga sa kasayahan. Isang araw ay nahimok ang mga dalaga na dumalo sa isang piging o ksiyahan sa pulo ng Guimaras, sa halip na magsimba. Hindi alam ng kanilang mga magulang ang kanilang ginawa.

Isang kapitbahay ang nakakita sa mga dalaga at agad na sinabi ito sa ina nila. Nang nalaman ng ina ang kanilang pagtakas ay nagalit ito, dahil mas inuna pa ng mga anak na dalaga ang kasaysayan kaysa sa Diyos. Kaya’t isinumpa niyanvg malubog sa lao’t ang mga ito. Tumalab ang sumpa ng ina, may malaking alon na dumaan sa bangka ng magkapatid na nagpataob ng kanilang bangka. Dahil sa hindi marunong lumangoy ang mga ito ay nalunod silang lahat.

Hindi na nakabalik ang mga dalaga. Nabalisa ang kanilang ina at natakot nab aka nagkatotoo ang kanyang dasal. Lumipas ang ilang buwan at may biglang tumubong mga maliliit na pitong isla/pulo kung saan natagpuan ang sinasakyang bangka ng mga dalaga. Naisip ng mga tao na ang tumubong mga pulo ay posibleng mga katawan ito ng pitong dalaga.

It has been said that history repeats itself. So why is it crucial to study history? Because one may learn about past human behavior that is relevant to the intellectual growth and development of himself as an individual. Learning about the events of the past give us an understanding of how the world came to be, not only in your world but around the world including all cultures of people as well as nature. Studying history will teach you how to understand and overcome change. Thus, history should be studied for several reasons. First, history helps us to understand other cultures. With this knowledge of history you can be able to analyse other cultures. Another reason to study history is because it helps us to understand change. Change comes every day and without history, people do not have anything to prepare themselves for. Furthermore, an understanding history is a basic prerequisite as a citizen of a nation. Also, history can explain change on a larger scale. For example, if someone wanted to know why the stock markets crash, they could research and look for patterns for economic downturns. So history does matter. It has been said that he who controls the past controls the future. Our view of history shapes the way we view the present, and therefore it dictates what answers we offer for existing problems. One of the greatest benefits of studying history is that it allows us a chance to learn about who we came from. The people of the past are those who came before us, and it is interesting to see how some of the thoughts, attitudes, and practices of today can differ so drastically from those throughout history.

History is important because it helps us to understand the present. History teaches values. If we will listen to what history has to say, we can come to a sound understanding of the past that will tell us much about the problems we now face. If we refuse to listen to history, we will find ourselves fabricating a past that reinforces our understanding of current problems.
