A collection of answers to the question, "If you had to write one note for future generations to read, what would you say?" includes advice on the importance of hard work and lifelong learning

Blackwell North Amer
"If you had to write a note - one note - and leave it propped against the sugar bowl on your kitchen table for future generations to read, what would you say in that note?"
This simple question appeared at the end of To Our Children's Children, a book that made writing a personal or family history as easy as writing a letter, and went on to become a contemporary classic.
Notes on the Kitchen Table is a heartwarming collection of the answers that poured in to authors Bob Greene and his sister, D. G. Fulford, from all over the country. They record the importance of kindness and hard work, of spiritual belief and respect for nature, of honesty and integrity and lifelong learning. They praise risk-taking and acknowledge adversity and imperfection. They are words carried as tattered relics in wallets, or attached with reverence to refrigerator doors.
Rich with anecdotes and thumbnail profiles of many contributors, Notes on the Kitchen Table is a gift of love - plainspoken, generous, and resonant with the true meaning of family.
