"All good men and women must take responsibility to create legacies that will take the next generation to a level we could only imagine." - Jim Rohn
What legacy do you want to leave your loved ones?
Are they really going to care about all the online, offline fallout, likes, dislikes etc.? When you are long gone, your loved ones will only want to treasure a memory or story that you shared with them and not the nonsense that goes on today.
A few years ago, there was an elderly gentleman that hopped on a bus in San Jose, Texas. The bus was completely full except for one seat next to a young lady.
The gentleman sat down beside the young lady and proceeded to wait for his stop. He quickly noticed that the young lady was attracted to the beautiful bouquet of flowers that he held in his hands. The bouquet was full and exquisite. After ten minutes or so, the young lady persisted with her attraction for the bouquet of flowers. Finally, the elderly gentleman turned towards her and said, "You seem to be so attracted by the beauty of these flowers".
"I think that I will just give them to you as a gift as you seem to love them so much". The young lady was so happy and delighted by his gesture. Then the gentlemen continued to say, "I'll just tell my wife that you loved them so much that I decided to give them to you as a gift."
The elderly gentleman arrived at his stop and got off the bus. As the bus drove off, the young lady looked out the window and saw that the man was entering the nearby cemetery.
You never know how your words or actions impact people. Everyone matters regardless of religion, color or anything else that might describe an individual.
