Memorial Day being is a day we recognize and remember in reverence the sacrifices that were made for us as a country to be where we are today. As a direct descendant of a military veteran who I was named after (see pic below), I try to embody the courage, dedication and loyalty that my grandfather exhibited. But here is the challenge for us heirs of heroes :
What will we be remembered for as a generation ?
What will you be remembered for by your family, your friends, your co-workers, your community?
Steven Covey in 7 habits of highly effective people suggests that effective people are guided by there legacy and that knowing what you want to be remembered by will help you to live with the values and conviction necessary to live an effective life. After all isn't that what we all want to be remembered, to live on after we are gone from this earth.
