The teen asked the the teacher, “Define Legacy for me please.” The teacher looked at the young man, and asked him these questions.

“When you grow up will you care for your mother as she has cared for your grandfather?”

He nodded without hesitation.

“Will you try and be as good as your grandfather and parents have been?”

“Of course,” replied the young man.

“Have you learned to be respectful, honest, how to stand up for what is right, and defend your family and friends?”

“Of course…but how is that defining Legacy?”, as now the whole class looked on.

“Who taught you to be the way you are today? Most of you are the way you are because of someone’s influence on you. If someone influenced you, this is their legacy passed on to you.”

When you look at those you influence, what kind of Legacy are you leaving?
