Sister Joan Chittister’s passage on Legacy addresses the different meanings of the term “Legacy” and which type of legacy we wish to leave when we die. A person can leave a legacy in one of two ways depending on the life the person has lived. When we hear the term legacy most people think of the amount of money or property that is left behind. An immaterial legacy is a statement of how a person is remembered after they pass on because of how they lived their life or how their life has enriched the lives of others. The emphasis on the passage is how a person chooses to live their life and how they have made the world a better place.
The author of this article concludes that legacy is a show of what we leave behind after out death (Chittister, 2010). I agree with this conclusion because our legacy is what is left in people’s mouths after we die. Also, I think that the dead can continue to inspire good and warn the living on bad behavior because their legacy gives an insight on how best to live life. In the writer’s perspective, it connects the past and future. The author believes that there are two types of legacies; material and immaterial legacy.
The end is near but it is only the beginning. Leaving behind a legacy is important to some people but what are they leaving is what counts. Chittister (2008) wrote, there is a big difference between leaving a legacy and leaving a “legacy” (Chittister, 2008). In
Your legacy is in your actions and what people remember. Many think one's legacy, is some monetary or wonderful gift one leaves those they love, or people they know. But I am here to tell you, that it's not your legacy, your legacy is in what is remembered about you, and what you leave behind in people’s memories and actions. Be it positive or negative, each lesson you teach is your legacy. Every day you work and speak and give motivation is your legacy.
In just a few short months, I will be graduating middle school. In a few short years I will be graduating high school, and then college. Time flies, and before it gets too late, I want to leave behind a great legacy. When people remember me, I want them to think positively about the impact I left on the world. Through the process of leaving my legacy there will be twists and turns, but in the end, it is all worth it.
I agree with this quote for a few reasons. To begin, the people in today’s society do not want to get out of their comfort zone in search of something greater. They can settle for anything that will keep them alive. This is not how these people should think. Everyone has at least one dream or goal in
I mainly started playing sports and talking to my family more after her passing away. It helped me overcome the fact that I lost someone very important and I usually put it as I was doing it for here.Everything I did was for her. So I keep that way, anything good I do in life or anything I accomplish I do it for her.It was hard overcoming that but throughout the years I try harder and harder.To be happy you need to find that one thing that sparks your emotion of being happy and to achieve that you need to find people that are always there for you no matter what you go through. Happiness is probably one of the main core values of every human being. Happiness is taught every day and you won't even notice it.
There is time. The only thing you need is courage to go out there and chase it. Because no one else is responsible for all that broken dreams and crushed ambitions you let go of, no one else but you. Don't live a life of regrets, a life of what ifs. Instead, start living a life of what
Some people reminisce the past, live in the present, and dream for the future. My childhood is something to look back at. Some things could have been better, but for the most part they were exceptionally good. I truly wish I continue to focus on the good parts of my childhood.The teenage years are what the majority of people say to run from, but I say that you can learn from all the mistakes you made, and will continue to make. Although, I’m still in this stage of my life, there are things I can already say that I will remember until the day I die.
Tomorrow is a new day, a new beginning.. let out all your guilt and start off new and fresh. Mom has always told me, it's only how you think of the situation that matters, you take it in a positive way you get positive results and you take it in a negative way you land up getting something which you never expected out of your life. So it is important to understand why someone is saying something and then react accordingly, jumping into conclusions would take you nowhere but you might just end up in troubles.
