You may recognize this title form the hit musical Hamilton. I was inspired by this piece to think about what remains after we are gone. I think we remain in other people’s memories through time, the length and intensity of which is determined by the impact we made while we were alive.
In as much as our DNA has memory and facilitates a kind of immortality as we pass our genes into future generations, so do other people’s memories of who we were.
In our lives we owe it to our ancestors to remember them, and to build upon the gifts they leave us. And we also owe it to the future to remember our own stories.
