Saddened after watching a documentary about Julius Ceasar

I never thought I’d feel this way, since Julius Caesar wasn’t one of my favorite historical characters. But after watching a documentary about him; watching the re-enactment on how he was stabbed to death when he attended the senate, and how people of Rome grieved over his death, I realized that, even though he was a brutal emperor, the people of Rome loved him. so, anyway, it made me think… it’s really a waste when a person as great as Julius Caesar gets assassinated, or suddenly dies. Actually, after watching a documentary about him, he became one of my favorite historical characters! It was said that, as he was dying, he covered his face  “because he cannot be seen to be brought so low”. Even though his enemies succeeded in bringing him down, they didn’t succeed in taking away his dignity and greatness… Poetic, isn’t it?

    One has to wonder what directions our history would have taken had Caesar not be assassinated ?
