Our Ancestors are the Foundation

Jun 7, 2020

When Grandfather speaks about today’s society, and that we enjoy a foundation of insulation, order and protection built by our ancestors through centuries of toil and tribulation, I feel gratitude. I am grateful for the ancestors who sacrificed for us and for the gods who blessed us.

Grandfather recently said that we “get the ear of the gods” with our hard work.

When I reach back in time, I feel the struggle of all people and their desire to leave a better world for us. We’re enjoying the fruits of their labor. We can honor them by continuing their work of making our world and our society better and better.
