To David and the rest of the Genners out there:
I think your question is a valid one. I learned to love the
connections I had with my past and with my roots as a very young child at
my grandfather's knee. I don't know what would happen if one day I woke up
and all the empty boxes on my family tree were filled in. Perhaps I'd feel
a great deal of disappointment at having lost my quest. I can tell you
this much. I feel, breathe, and see through our ancestor's eyes. I
imagine the clothing they wore, the places they walked, the words they
spoke. Every new person is another part of me, of who I am, of where I
came from, of what I feel, see and love. I am nothing without them. They
brought me to this juncture in life. This time and space I occupy is only
thanks to G-d and those who came before me. I don't know how else to
explain it. It's part of who I am and I can't divorce myself >from it.
That's why it is so important to help those who survived the Holocaust
reconstruct what was stolen >from them.
We are nothing without a past, without roots, and of course
wings.......................
