Here you will find a collection of different things that I feel are important to American Life. I think Family is important above all other things.

Ever since I was a young boy I have always felt that family is forever. It is our responsibility to keep our ancestors memory alive. Take the opportunity to interview and record family members in the generation above you. Document your family history and keep it safe.
