So I thought I'd pass along the good word: write your personal history. And write your family history too - and get it published before your children get ahold of it (& the truth gets out).

Leaving Our History Behind
Today's Sacrament meeting included a couple of very inspirational talks. Aunt Melody started off with great encouragement to be good by doing good. Lots of poetry - good poetry. Then my mom walked us through all of the good reasons that everyone should be writing their own personal & family history to leave for their posterity. I thought she made some very good points, including that if one does not write one's own history, one's family will (post mortem) and one can only imagine how that might turn out - or what it might turn up. I suppose on the other hand I needn't imagine, as it is played back to me in an endless variety of methods by my immediate posterity.
