The George Washington Carver List really touched me. Also included are quotes by other Great Minds, Leaders, and Speakers: George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Maya Angelou, and Thomas Sowell.
I think we often forget the wisdom of our past by belittling history’s accomplishments because we don’t agree with the social or societal “norms” of the time.
It’s important to look at all our Forefathers: Political, and Social leaders through the lens of what life was at like in their time.
Just because society wasn’t perfect, or an individual historical figure wasn’t perfect, does NOT DISMISS their overwhelming accomplishments.
Someday, people are going to look back on THIS time and judge.
How do you want to be judged?
By all the things you did and tried to do?
By your very human failings and mistakes?
We ALL have them.
God said, “Let he without sin cast the first stone.”
I am imperfect. I’ve made mistakes, hurt people, made bad choices.
I HOPE when I am gone, those are not the focus of my legacy.
I hope when I’m gone, I am remembered for the good I tried to add to the world. The love and time I gave to family and friends and strangers; for accepting people as they are, not how I wish they were.
What do you you want your legacy to include?
