The Meaning of a Legacy


Legacy is a profound word. It tells us that what we are getting ready to read or hear will be known for generations to come.  I like to think of myself as the keeper of a legacy.  Each of us has a legacy, whether we want to or not, whether we share it or not.  I take pride in every one who came before me, for their struggles, their triumphs and yes, even their failures.  That is who I am, who we are as a nation, as a people. I encourage each of you to take the time to preserve the story of who you are, your family’s story,  and to fill up that now-empty page with what the future holds.

    Well written. We each have a story of our lives built upon the foundations set by those who have come before. 2 parents, 4 grandparents, 8 great grandparents… 16, 32, 64, 128, 256… so many stories have come before, each adding to our own.
