Forrest’s essay in part says: “I truly believe it is up to us as Americans to do whatever we can to preserve this great and diverse heritage. It is our responsibility and duty to make sure tht we live by the rules and guidelines that our ancestors have made. We need to pass these customs and heritages on down to our children.
