Wednesday, November 11, 2015
It seems fitting to me that today we take a moment to think of those in our lives that we have lost and those who have lead us to where we are today. If you are like me, you fall into a category where someone in your family is into genealogy. Chances are they randomly update you about your family tree and some bit of history with which you are connected via your bloodline. Normally you listen and appreciate their efforts only to forget the tidbit a few days later. Today though I was thinking about all the stories that my family members must have had as many served in the military going all the way back to Civil War. Tidbits of their service and small tokens found to give us a glimpse of their story, but the story itself is lost. It's a shame to have so much lost as history, both personal and as a population can teach us great things. It can show us how to fail, how to succeed, and how to live just by the outcome of the actions people took.
