Celebrities such as Oprah, Tim Russert, Tom Brokaw, Larry King, and President Clinton have discovered how enlightening and rewarding it is to write your own story and read the stories of their parents and grandparents.

I urge you to pursue preserving your personal history to allow your children and grandchildren to know who you were as a child and what your hopes and dreams were."--Oprah Winfrey,
on her TV show, January, 2003

Anyone who’s fortunate enough to live to be 50 years old should take the time, even if it’s just a couple of weekends, to sit down and write the story of your life.
--President William Clinton
