What will your Legacy be?

“Every generation leaves behind a legacy. What that legacy will be is determined by the people of that generation. What legacy do you want to leave behind?”

John Lewis

Watching news coverage on the passing of Congressman John Lewis this quote really made me think.

What will our Legacy be?

Congressman Lewis spent his entire adult life fighting for equality. He has been called the conscience of Congress. It strikes me that his death comes at a time when our country is examining our collective conscience. What will our legacy be?

For me this is not an easy question to answer. I need to reflect on it without stating the first thing that comes to mind. I would love to learn how your would answer this question. Please leave your comments below and indicate if you are willing to have them made public. Thank You.
