We have much to learn from our parents regarding our heritage, to be proud of our past. This heritage and history brings a sense of belonging. Most importantly, it brings us a sense of identity of our past and the responsibility to protect it for our future generations.
I wonder why the author used a singular verb (brings). Does he consider "heritage and history" together a single unit? I would use a plural verb here. (bring).
