I'd Like to Challenge You to Write
After the great flood, only Noah and his family survived. Well, and a whole lot of animals. Yet, we know what happened from creation on, how? Because our ancestors and forefathers and foremothers told the stories and passed them down from generation to generation.
You have a story. Your family has a story. It will go with you to the grave unless you share those stories with your children, grand-children, and if you're lucky enough, great-grandchildren. If you don't consider yourself a spell binding story teller, grab a pen and paper, (or your laptop) and get busy. The point is, preserve the memories that make your family what it is. Insure that generations from now, your name will still be mentioned and the events that helped to mold you are shared.
A legacy is more than just a name. It's a lifetime of experiences. Share the wealth.
