Place in History - Why I Am Here

This week a switch flipped in my mind and I finally understood my place in history. My place is not to change the world. My place is not one that will be recorded in any history book. My place in history is merely to connect my children to the heritage of their family.

It is my life's goal to see Jewish grandchildren and, G-d willing, great-grandchildren.

Everything else is secondary.
