Emory University recently performed a study revealing that children who learn their family history are happier, healthier, and grow up to be successful, productive citizens. Does it take a college thesis to correct humanity's downward slide into immorality, after millenniums of being told what to do? Here are a few of those ancient instructions:
"To put the world in order, we must first put the nation in order; to put the nation in order, we must put the family in order…” ―Confucius
“To be ignorant of what occurred before you were born is to remain always as a child. For what is the worth of a human life, unless it is woven into the life of our ancestors?” ― Cicero
“Listen to Me, you who follow after righteousness, you who seek the lord, look to the rock from which you were hewn… to Abraham your father, and to Sarah who bore you.” ―GOD (Isaiah 51:1,2)
My three published works― The Keeper Chronicles Volumes I and II(Mall Street Sleuth and Breakthrough) by G. H. Sherrer, and the Civil War saga, Trapped in the Crossfire by Gladys Hodge Sherrer― have characters modeling sound moral values. Buy these books for your family, while you still can influence a life for good. They are sold on Amazon, online at Books-a-Million and Barnes and Noble.
