History in the Making

I also hope my searching and writing this story of my ancestors and the part they played to provide a better life for America, themselves and their descendants, will honor them and give meaning to their lives as well as become a tribute to them. I realize, we who are alive today, have lived and are now participating in this same history as life continues, for us. Even today, we, our children and grandchildren are making the history for tomorrow. I hope this realization will give us, their descendants, the ambition and courage to make even more of our own lives.

I find the great thing in this world is not so much where we stand,
as in what direction we are moving:
To reach the port of heaven,
we must sail sometimes with the wind and sometimes against it,
--but we must sail, and not drift, nor lie at anchor.

-----Oliver Wendall Holmes----

Thought and theory must precede all salutary action;
yet action is nobler in itself than either thought or theory.

-----William Wordsworth-----
