When the newspaper whispered

When I came across the newspaper clipping announcing my Grandpa Tipton’s arrival into town – I took note of the date, September 6, 1884 and it took awhile before the gravity of it all set in.


It confirmed what I was able to discern from the countenances of my Ancestors in the aged photo.

My Grandma and Grandpa Tipton


My 3rd Great Grandparents were a proud people and they both wielded a presence which demanded that it be acknowledged.

I often see this same energy in the form
of my family and it inspires me.

I just wanted to show honor to the shoulders that hold us aloft.


And.

Like my Grandpa
Tipton and the litany of other Ancestors I’ve encountered – the mention of their names generates a respect
that is above repute.


It is redemptive knowing that the fortitude of my Ancestors is alive and well.
