Legacies

“I am what survives of me”- Erik Eriksson
“What you leave behind is not what is engraved in stone monuments, but what is woven into the lives of others”- Pericles ( Greek statesman of Athens).
“Thomas Alva Edison’s tribute of October 22, 1931, was about what he bestowed on humanity during his lifetime. By his achievements, he laid the foundation for continued and greater development. Edison left a legacy of opportunities”- Thomas Watson.
“It is not who you know, but who you help”- Anonymous
Everyone born into the world leaves a legacy. It could be something shared as ‘mundane’ as:
Going to the park; Playing games; Watching and playing sports;
Going to the movies or watching television at home;
Sharing stories about your triumphs and mistakes;
Teaching about God and the values of life;
Accomplishments; beliefs; actions and guidance demonstrated daily in a way others can adapt.
It could be a journal, a character trait or skill.
Legacy is not about things, it is who we are and how we touch lives.
It is not what is left for others, but what is left IN them.
Service is giving the best of ME to others.
This is what true legacy entails. Leave a legacy that people will remember years after you are gone.
Today, Tomorrow, and Everyday, Create YOUR Legacy.
