  1. Hello! Thank you for the lesson but, i think there is more . I mean there is”present” as a period of time, now and there is ” to present” like “to introduce” and I am sure there is much more.

    I remember that a wise woman said once: ” Yesterday is history, tomorrow is mystery and today is a gift . That’s why we call it …present”. Thank you, again and I apologize for any mistake I’ve made.
