Who’s going to tell your story?

Lin-Manuel Miranda presented this question in his Broadway musical, Hamilton. In the musical is a beautiful song, titled, “Who Lives, Who Dies, Who Tells Their Story” which prompted my next idea: Who better to tell our stories but us! The song shares the importance of telling “our stories” and sharing our family legacy. Have you thought about documenting family stories but just didn’t know where to begin? Have you started, but found the memories overwhelming? Start slow, and begin writing what you know, what you remember and focusing on your memories.
You may have a favorite picture from your childhood or a favorite memory with a relative, if so, begin with that story. Share what you remember and know about the photo. You will then be telling your story to share with future generations. Your stories and memories are important, just as important as those we read from our ancestors. It’s important to document our journey, so others will continue to tell our story.
