Did I really hear that?



A story on the evening news
was about monkeys in the Conga
that might becoming extinct.
The story ended with these words:
"If these monkeys do become extinct,
we will lose a part of our human
heritage."

I want to know whose family
tree has monkeys on it......????
Did the news reporter really
believe that and has that on
his family tree that tells his children
their great, great, great......
grandfather was a monkey?

Well, if reporters, politicians, and scientists want to claim that part of their family tree, then so be it. It would explain a lot! LOL!

My heritage decides from Adam and Eve who trace their family tree back to God . . .
