#100WCGU – Wk126 – Prompt: …Family… – 100 words – “Family Forest”

26 Mar

A Year 3 class was looking at their Family Tree. It made me think about family and links through time.

Most of us have a relative keen to find more. For me, it was a cousin who traced sometimes tenuous links back to Emperor Augustus. While such links seemed impressive, I questioned how unique they were when we go back 68 generations.

Just considering parents, grandparents then successive greats, we’ve roughly 300,000,000,000,000,000,000. The number is impossible and shows we’ve many links to others. We don’t have family trees, we have family forests.

My family is humanity. Our home is Earth.
