“Happiness is not in the mere possession of money; it lies in the joy of achievement, in the thrill of creative effort.” ―Franklin D. Roosevelt One of the most effective ways to share our story with a larger audience and to pass it on to the next generation is to write a book. This chapter encourages immigrants to write so that they can enrich the cultural heritage of their new country and add their own “flavor” to existing ones.
The next logical step after taking ownership of your story is writing it down. You do not have to wait to be rich and famous to write a book. Writing a book will force you to structure, organize, and present your story in a way that it will be available to a greater audience. The digital age and the World Wide Web have made writing and publishing a book affordable.
You do not need to be an English literature major to put your thoughts and ideas on paper and share it with the entire world.
When you are long dead and gone, the story you leave behind will continue to be read and inspire the next generations.
If you do not want to write for the general public, write the book for your children; if you have no children, write the book for your family.
