Today we take the ability to use a telephone for granted, but it was not before 1876 when Alexander Bell  revolutionized communication by inventing a telephone. Back then, the telephone was so precious that there was only one telephone was available in a single town and even a city. In my parents' generation, only few rich families could own a telephone due to its unreasonably expensive cost of using it.

The earliest types of communication  are the cave paintings, a form of rock art. Cave drawings were murals that people painted onto the walls of caves and canyons to tell the story of their culture.

The sound of the drumming patterns would tell them of concerns and events they needed to know. Smoke signals were another way to send messages to people as well.

The way they express themselves determines who they are and whether or not they will succeed in their profession.
