Who cares about their heritage?

In this modern age, when everything is about technology and the future, does anyone care about their past and where they came from? In my opinion, the people of my generation don't.

I guess I'm an odd individual. I love the arts, I love cartoons and anime, I love fantasy and sci-fi; but I'm also a Southerner at heart, who loves to fish, hunt, and watch NASCAR (yes, I've been called a hippie and a redneck). I also love my Southern heritage. I come from a family of dirt poor farmers. I had several ancestors in the Civil War. And I would love to know what countries my family came from.

I'm very proud of my family and it's heritage. How about yall? Or does it just not matter?

except for holidays i really dont care about my heritage that much. i care and am proud about what i am but its more important to look to the future and WHO a person is. i wont let my heritage/religion/whatever bound me.

for example, when a person told me that he likes me because im jewish it didnt make me proud or happy in any way. it was just as stupid as hating me for the same reason. so yes, in a way heritage isnt that important

I love my southern roots, too. However, I don't do all the hunting and stuff. I do love the food, though. Basically, if you fry it or it's greasy, then it's good. I still like other kinds of food, but I love my grandma's cooking.

I'm not really too bothered about where I came from or what my ancestor's did, I see no reason why I should reflect back onto something/someone I've never known.
I am interested in what my grandparents did though, because I know them otherwise everything else just sounds like a story to me.

I definitely care about my heritage. My father is from a very specific area in this lovely country of mine and I know I have some pretty special ancestors from that area. My mother's side of the family is all from the Netheralnds so my house has many tulips in the summer, lots of delph blue stuff. Orange is incorporated into any an every family event, my family celebrates Dutch Christmas. I would really like to learn dutch and perhaps stay in the Netherlands in order to do so.

I definitely care about my heritage! One of my favorite things too do is learn about or look at old things. So my heritage falls into that category.

I've been called a hippie

......You're not a hippie. The hippie culture wasn't solely concentrated in the South, and they're totally different people.

I care. Chinese and all. Important.

I've been called a hippie for having a long beard and for having 3 ft long hair (used too), and for my other interests that aren't considered normal for a 'good ol'boy'. Sorry I wasn't clear about that.
