Who we are, is who we were.

I recall these words spoken by John Quincy Adams in the Amistad slave trial. Those words ring in my mind as time goes on. Because it is what we are all about. We think our thoughts and think them original, but are they? Because we are from whence we came. So who we are is who we have been and who we will be. In this new age of DNA we have found that to be more true than what have ever thought. Remember the next time you look at things and reflect.Because it is not only you,it is all who have come before you. Who we are is who we were. Truer words were never spoken.
