Just prior to the years end , Jackie and I visited family in South Carolina. None of us are from there and yet we were. Let me explain. For most of our lives we collectively knew very little of our family heritage and roots, so we went on an adventure.
I discovered that possibly we might have come from some small towns about 90 miles west of Charleston, SC. We met, we drove and in the midst of the woods outside of town we discovered our relatives.
To stand in front of great grandparents and great aunt and uncles was a moving and exciting experience. I believe I said it was like being in a sacred place.
