  • Personal Narrative: Growing Up My Grandparents

    a purely Caucasian family, I have always felt that my ancestors pretty much lived the same life style as each other.

At the time, Bordeaux was a prospering town and this really was the ‘Golden Age’ for the town.

  • Personal Speech: You Were The Only Great Grandparent

    You were the only Great Grandparent I had the honor of knowing. I wish that you were living to be capable of viewing the legacy you left behind. You died when I was only seven years old; yet your traditions, beliefs, and ways of life are still holding true with our family. Not only do we still have our annual Easter Egg hunt every year, we still hang all of our Christmas stockings together on one mantle, we have started growing our own gardens, several of us are raising chickens, and three of…
