Because it’s a kind of fortune or treasure. Wikipedia suggests that heritage refers to something inherited from one’s ancestors – a legacy of physical artifacts and/or intangible attributes. Knowing your family legacy helps express identity, define values and add meaning to everyday life.

"Know from whence
you came
because if you know
from whence you came
There is no limit
to where you can go.
