100 Words – Roots

[100 Words is a story in 100 words or less, based off the word in the title.]

Not just linking you to the past, but the way the past links to you. How it affects you, your legacy, your history, your lineage.

Your home is your roots, your history is your roots. Your home might move, but your history doesn’t.

And when you have no lineage, when you have no roots, you are lost. You are not from anywhere, or anyone. You are just lost, with nothing tying you to the earth beneath your feet.
