what we inherit

mmm, my mind went all kinds of places when I read this prompt

usually the word “inherit” might have me considering furniture or silver or personality traits..

today the prompt has me thinking about the decisions of one group of people being carried forward by another group of people

We talk about this kind of thing often, don’t we?  In a democratic society we often belong to groups that are inheriting the decisions and actions made by a prior body of people loosely or closely affiliated but influenced by different agendas, timelines, or perceptions, or ??

But just as the furniture and silver I inherited don’t decorate every inch of my home, the decisions and actions made by a group of people last year or even the year before, or the year before that, shouldn’t prohibit me or any of us from renewing the discussion with the current group working to move forward.
