Have we forgotten
our childhood days
filled with exciting adventures?
Have we buried these memories
in this electronic age,
or should I say...
did we trade our memories
for what we think, must be
replaced with updated ones.
Our heritage must not be forgotten.
We must pass stories down
For future generations
to know their family roots
of a happier time.
Some stories can mold the future
and can be of comfort and strength
as a special gift for generations
that they too, can reach for the stars
and never be forgotten.
I just read today, that some old fashion words were being removed from dictionaries to update with more modern words. I love old dictionaries from the 30's, 40's and 50's for they filled with wonderful old words that are no longer in use. The old dictionaries are very helpful when you are writing books and stories from the past.
