Good morning everyone,
October is Family History Month. Millions of Americans are researching the history of their families. What better way to bring families closer together than by discovering more about the stories of their own families. As a country, we need to get past being scared and celebrate who we are and where we came from. Family history is a very important part of who we are as individuals and as a nation. It can lead to family reunions, new medical treatments based on genetic links, and a sense of tolerance and understanding of individuals from different religions, cultures and backgrounds. With the exception of Native Americans, our ancestors were all immigrants to this country, coming from different parts of the globe. By searching for our roots, we come closer together as a human family.
The Alamosa Senior Center would like to thank those who helped with our fund-raiser last Friday and also those who came to support us.
Quote of the week: To forget one’s ancestors is to be a brook without a source, and a tree without roots.
See you next week,
