Heritage

Heritage is a combination of the things that give us a sense of self. It is the traditions we keep, the languages we speak, the music we play, the books we read, the tools we use, the stories passed down through our families, the nursery rhymes and lullabies our parents and grandparents sang to us. It is also the buildings we live in and use, the parks that we play in and the forests and mountains that we cherish.
