Who We Are Today is Directly Connected to Our Family History
We become who we are after understanding who they were.
This is my grandmother Velma Steward Sanders (center) with her siblings Emma and RT in Navarro County, Texas in 1922.
My sweet grandmother and her sister have lived in the same community in Texas their entire lives! They lived within a mile radius of their siblings.
Their father, Jim, donated the land for the colored school and part of the cemetery in Goodlow, Texas.
Uncle RT went to WWII and served overseas. He’s the baby in the picture, but he’s now 93!
My grandmother will be 97 in June. This picture is a great glimpse into their beginnings. ~shared by @aaronlmyers
