We are often so busy trying to be someone else that we have not taken the time to really sit down, so to speak, and examine/appreciate our roots.
It seems reinvention is the order of the day. Let me just say that reinvention is often a good thing. But, just remember that your roots are what keep you grounded. They are like a shield against the trails of life, without them we are often swept away by life's adversities.
So, embrace your roots today.
A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots.
