you hear history, do you moan? Do you want something interesting
to do instead? Try this: In addition to reading about people in a book,
go ask one of your family members to tell you a story.
Oral histories are very important. Knowing where you come
from and how things have changed helps you to know yourself and where
you are going. You arent likely to find the story of your great-grandfathers
childhood in a book. So go ask him!!
To create a full story, you will interview and research.
