Carle Sandburg Quote


I would add to this thought that the same applies to families.  There is strength that comes from knowing our past.  Knowing about our ancestors – their struggles, triumphs, sacrifices, and values – is a powerful thing.  A family strengthening thing.  A society enriching thing.  Knowledge and remembering make us stronger.

  1. I always told my children,” You have to know where you came from and what you are made of!” I still believe it!
