“Carve your name on hearts, not tombstones. A legacy is etched into the minds of others and the stories they share about you.” These are the words of Shannon Adler and her advice is sound. Out legacy lives on in the people we have loved and helped. Tavis Smiley puts it this way, “The choices we make about the lives we live determine the kinds of legacies we leave.” He too is right. Understanding the importance of the choice we make can propel us toward understanding our place in the universe and how even the smallest of choices make a difference.
There is a wonderful you tube video entitled Leave Your Legacy by Ahmed Ghazaly. We hope you enjoy it. At Entrusted Legacy we are working every day to make a difference and pay it forward.
If you can be, choose to be a role model and mentor for youth. If you can’t be, choose to support a youth worker who is. Join us in our work at Entrusted Legacy. www.entrustedlegacy.org or donate by going to http://entrustedlegacy.org/give-now-2
