Why we need to preserve the past for the future! Many times people come to me with items from family not knowing where else to go, or what do with them. It seems personal values have drastically changed over a very short period of time. Many things as pretty much “disposable” these days, and most could care less about passing something meaningful down to a loved one or friend. What happened to the good old days when people dreamed about getting Uncle Joe’s WW2 jacket, or Grammies locket she got from her mother! Many folks have lost touch with what seems to be a part of our heritage, and most importantly, our countries history. Next time you are gifting, think of something very meaningful or historical, and take the time to explain why this “item” should be treasured forever. Putting values back in their proper order will make for a much brighter future.
