#27 The New Story Creators….Your Kids!
When a young person looks at a picture on the wall and asks parents and grandparents “Who is that?”, they’ll be off on a journey that will benefit them thru their lives.
With a little encouragement, the research and writing of the story of an unknown relative can ignite the imagination and light the fire of ‘social history’; the stories of those who came before us, and our personal relationship with them.
The act of finding and telling those stories can be the Trojan horse to change school’s normally boring social studies courses; create better communicators… and be a make-or-break asset for college and career.
Yes, our kids can find and create our legacy stories… and they will be the beneficiaries.
