I love to think that we're all these cultural beneficiaries, agents, and eventual ancestors regardless of whether we ever have children. We are born into a world, we try to pick up on the ways we're socialized and interact with people, hopefully, we interrogate what we value and where that comes from and how it manifests...and eventually, we'll each play an individual role in collectively passing down a world. That is a sacred trust.
