At some point in their life, everyone should write an autobiography. It is a great way to put your life story into a book, and to leave a priceless legacy to loved ones.
One benefit that I would get from writing an autobiography, would be having a complete book of my life, that I could review at any time. While my autobiography will not be full of mumbo jumbo, I am sure that I will include some of the important personal stories that will be pleasureful to look back on.
Writing an autobiography would be a huge benefit for not only me, but also the people around me. Last year, my Grandpa died from a tragic heart attack. My uncle spent many hours gathering stories and photographs to put together to form a timeline, my devoted uncle also did this 4 years ago when my sweet Grandma died of cancer. Not long after, I began the “English 1: autobiography” class with the Ron Paul Curriculum. It made me think more about my grandparents, and I thought to myself “what if they had written autobiographies?” I would have insights as to how they grew up, how the lived and raised my father, and how they overcame life’s many problems. It would have been a wonderful legacy for all of their children and grandchildren. The more I think of it, the more I wish they had written autobiographies. I want to be sure that I leave the legacy of an autobiography for my loved ones.
