March is Chamorro Heritage month here on Guam and so I thought this quote was perfect for this month's mantra. We all get so busy with our day-to-day routines, caught up in technology and enjoying the comforts of the modern world that we tend to take things for granted. We forget how hard it must have been for our ancestors to get this far, we forget the values that made us who we are, we forget our culture.
This month, let's explore and appreciate our own culture and heritage as well as those of others. Let's learn something new about where we came from, bring back an old tradition, and be proud of who we are!
What do you think about reconnecting with your cultural roots? What traditions or customs are unique to your culture?
