"In all of us there is a hunger, marrow deep, to know our heritage - to know who we are and where we came from. Without this enriching knowledge, there is a hollow yearning. No matter what our attainments in life, there is still a vacuum, an emptiness, and the most disquieting loneliness."
— Alex Haley, Roots
"There are only two lasting bequests we can give our children - one is roots, and the other, wings."
— Hodding S. Carter
"Generations pass like leaves fall from our family tree. Each season new life blossoms and grows benefiting from the strength and experience of those who went before."
-- Heidi Swapp

A sense of family is very important to the emotional and mental health of every person. In today's world, we sometimes lose focus of its importance.
