Thank you for taking this long trip with me. I hope it has not been boring. No one knows what the next millennium will hold for us, but we still have our memories come what may.
Treasure them, don't bury them. Do your part in ensuring the future generations get to know the things we hold dear to us - conserve our old buildings, if not, take as many pictures as you can of the buildings around us, for our children and their children may not get to see some of them in their time. Keep pictures of your TV/movie shows and show them to your children. Write stories and sprinkle some of these things in your stories.
