ANCESTORS IF YOU COULD SEE YOUR ANCESTORS ALL STANDING IN A ROW, WOULD YOU BE PROUD OF THEM OR NOT, OR DONT YOU REALLY KNOW.
SOME STRANGE DISCOVERIES ARE MADE IN CLIMBING FAMILY TREES, AND SOME OF THEM, YOU KNOW, DO NOT PARTICULARLY PLEASE.
IF YOU COULD SEE YOUR ANCESTORS ALL STANDING IN A ROW, THERE MIGHT BE SOME OF THEM PERHAPS YOU WOULDNT CARE TO KNOW.
BUT THERES ANOTHER QUESTION WHICH REQUIRES ANOTHER VIEW. IF YOU COULD MEET YOUR ANCESTORS, WOULD THEY BE PROUD OF YOU? BY RUTH BETHEA JOHNSON FROM BRADY JOHNSON PROJECT
