Independent Editor,

   Each day, people are learning that their DNA can unlock health issues along with finding your family tree. There are many companies that provide this service and some businesses have partnered to download your DNA for free instead of paying for a whole new kit.

   A DNA package has always been the best gift to give to your loved ones for Christmas or all year round. Please take advantage of sales during holidays. Do not be afraid to offer your DNA for science. We can unlock so much potential in curing diseases. And at the end of the day, it will also help your doctor to pinpoint what medications you need, and the benefits of health insurance, not paying for expensive medical care. It’s a win-win for everyone.

When my DNA belongs to millions of other people, it’s really a small world after all, and I can be part of the family that does contribute to society where it matters the most. That is why I have given the police force permission to use my DNA for cold cases. I’m sure many family members have made mistakes along the way.

   And my recent endeavor has been genome sequencing. Where the laboratory will look at all of my DNA and find out more about me than I could ever imagine. With age comes wisdom and this is what I was meant to do.

   The bond a person has the first time they realize how important they truly are in society, the bigger the responsibility becomes. As I discussed the last time I wrote, the DNA is your own spiritual journey and it makes your faith stronger. God chooses certain people to carry this DNA, and I am very honored and privileged to be part of this family branch.

   The question I ask is, are you related to me or will you lead your flock astray? Ignore the noise of politics. It’s just a family squabble.

   Yes, we are all one family, but where do you belong on the family tree? How long will you stay blind until you find your

Amazing Grace?
