Aqua- Understanding

 Democracy is a Greek word. Demo means people, and cracy means power or rule. 

The kids in ancient Greece were in danger from the plane bombings.

Why was it that if you were poor that you couldn’t vote?  What year was democracy invented?                                                                                                                                     

 I understand how democracy has changed over the years and how different it is to today than it was in the olden days.
