Finding our Roots ?

In our class today we spoke about Identity and what it means for an individual to be in search for his or her roots. Professor Al-Azmeh posed a question to us: How do you define your roots ? he told us that at times people say that they want to know themselves or find themselves and for this reason people physically go back to their place of origin or to their parents place of origin. He then said to us how can we understand these roots, how do we define them ? is there such a thing as physically going back to our roots when we know places have changed ? what did we define ourselves as before we realized that there was something missing ?

Things to think about: genealogy, spiritual roots, ? any thoughts ?
