Your children and grandchildren (even if you don't even have kids or grandkids yet) need your life story to preserve their legacy. Children (especially grown children) will gain strength and wisdom from reading the life experiences and memories of their parents and grandparents. They don’t just want your life stories recorded; they need them to be recorded.

Within your story is the story of the men and women that shaped your life. Within your story are your memories of your parents, grandparents, aunts, and uncles. Without your recollections of these important people, the next generations will never know them. That would be a shame.
