Everyone has a story. Some are full of heroic events that shaped and changed history. Others slipped through history only to be remembered by their loved ones. Whoever or wherever your story takes you, remember that you are part of a larger family. These are your people and you are here today because of the sacrifice and strength that was displayed on your behalf. Today, let's reflect upon the lives of our ancestors and see what we can learn from them as we prepare ourselves for a brighter future.
