New Legacy Web Site

Robb Lucy has created a web site devoted entirely to a topic of great interest to me.  LEGACY!!  He is encouraging people to be aware of their legacy throughout their lives and to act accordingly. He sees legacy as much bigger than $$$, and asks yu to consider doing the following:

1. Write your story either in an Ethical Will or Personal Legacy statement- even writing your own eulogy can help you to determine how you want to live your life right now.

2. Gather your families stories by interviewing aunts, uncles, parents, siblings, cousins. These stories can be compiled into print, video or audio for future generations to review the family history.

3. Create your story by doing the things that will leave memories about the legacy you want to leave.This can encompass philanthropic activities, caring for a neighbour’s child when the parent is ill, or volunteering at a homeless shelter. The possibilities are limitless.

Two interesting quotes from the website are:

Bill Clinton “The creation and maintaining of one’s own Legacy should consume your every waking hour.”
Robert Kennedy  “Few will have the greatness to bend history itself, but each one of us can work to change a small portion of events, and in the total of all those acts will be written the history of this generation.”
