Personal legacies...

By Vichara

All our daily activities are tempered by knowledge and guidance given to us by others who helped or hindered us and of course what we have read and seen. On a daily basis all of our senses are ingesting and digesting the best and the worst of humanity. If we were given only violence, we would only know violence. If we were given only compassion, we would only know compassion. Unfortunately and fortunately the world does not work that way. It is a collection of competing contrasts that present themselves to us and ask us to judge and act accordingly. How we act will be how the world sees us. How do you want to be seen and remembered? Our personal legacies may not be as large as people like Rosa Parks, Gandhi, Einstein and others but they are no less as important. Each step, word and deed counts and will be counted.
