I chose this photo because I thought it represented well the past and the future and combined well with the six word memoir that I came up with. By "the future begins with the past" I mean that the choices and decisions that you make, as well as other people make, moulds the guidelines in which future events take place. It is symbolic on both a personal level and a universal level. On a personal level, it represents family, as my ancestors are shown in the photo, and it represents my own decisions and past as well as my future. On a universal level it represents all past and all future.
