This week, they researched Matthew Broderick's history. The short of it is was he had a grandfather who was quiet. Not a man of many words, and Matthew wanted to know why.
Come to find out, Matthew's grandfather, Joe--the man of few words, had a big story to tell.
Winner of the Purple Heart. Medic in World War 1. Won the Silver Star. And happened to not mention a word of it to his family.
Matthew the movie star said something that I will never forget. Speaking of his grandfather Joe, the man of few words, Matt said, "To me, he has always just been Joe the postman." Until now.
There is such power of knowning your ancestry. If you do not know it, you should learn it. You will never regret it. :)
