"How many people have lived, labored, and died without leaving a record of their existence, not even a scribbled trace? Today, for the most part, we do not know who built the roads, and bridges we travel; the buildings we work, reside, and shop; the water and sewer system we use daily. We don’t usually think about who made our furniture and clothing, let alone our toothbrushes, nor who tends, harvests, and transports the food we eat everyday."
