You should write your story because you have lived and your life is important. I especially impress upon seniors to write, or record, their stories when I do a presentation titled “Write Your Story.” I think many people do not know their parents outside of their parenting roles. There are other reasons to write what you know best. It contributes to the social fabric of society. You have lived through important historical and political events, endured and survived when other did not. There are psychological, and spiritual factors that make those events real to people who where not there, or simply want to know what it was like. Lastly, only you can write your story the way you, alone, experienced it.
