What was left behind was homogeniety of culture, religion, and people.

What was left behind was the isolation of country life.

What was left behind were the meals you grew up on that never changed from day to day.

What was left behind was the collective memory of your past, usually the things you wished they wouldn't remember.

What was left behind was the misdeeds of your ancestors, their prejudices, and their narrow worldview.

What was left behind was the place you were supposed to belong, but never really did.

What was left behind was who you were supposed to be because that's who your parents and grandparents had been.
