Respecting our elders... 

We all have a family history which is no less than a classic novel. We have heard tales of our elders; who doesn’t like to hear stories about their fathers and mothers, their grandparents.. as proud Americans. 

The family tree is where we come from, who we are, and how our families advanced through time. This gives us roots in this world and an individual story to depend upon. 

We should respect our history and those who made it.  vw
