Causing Legacy for A Brighter Future

There I was facilitating a zoom call with family members I had just met less than 6 months prior. I was determined to discover who my family was, where we came from and to discover the legacy that my elders have left to my generation. In partnership with my cousins across the world, we were able to have 5 (of 7) elders including the matriarch who was 93 on a zoom call. Shortly, after we began, my Great Aunt Clemie said: “Wow. I haven’t seen my younger brother (90) since I was ten years old.”

It was after this amazing call that I began to consider the other elders in my life and look at the opportunity to honor them while also contributing to generations coming after me.
