The Essence of Our Ancestry

"We can, at times, feel the hands of our ancestors as they touch us, as they gently turn us, and point us in the right direction, as we search for the indelible marks they left on the eternity of time. When they touch us, the feeling is always good. We believe we do them great honor when we think and speak of them. We believe they look upon us, from their vantage point, with love and pride. It is no different than when our own children and grandchildren in this world treat us with that same love and respect that brings us to the bursting point of pride." --K. M. King
