Sadly, people can pass on without leaving much of a legacy behind; questions may have gone unanswered, words could have been left unsaid. Some may say that it is okay because it will not matter in death, but it will to the people that care about you and vice versa, “whether or not we give much thought to it, everyone else we know will” (Chittester, 2008). As people often say, life is too short and tomorrow is not guaranteed. We must take advantage of the time we do have and use it as an opportunity to make it the best life we can for ourselves and those who we leave behind or come after
After she died he was looking for a way to remember her and that was how he did, by imagining what they could of been if she was still alive.

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
A message to live like you’re dying. In conclusion, everything is uncertain. The most important thing is the fact that you lived every day to the absolute fullest. You can never truly know what will happen next. I believe you should live every day to the fullest because you never know when your last one
“Our legacy does not end the day we die” speaks to the way others see us. We must learn to live now, the way we wish people to remember us in the future. Learning to make amends and trying to heal the bad memories, we must start creating new ones now while we have the opportunity. Seize the day and live in the present. We must make sure that we live within our means and balance the things that are important with the things that we need to
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.
Things like walking with them, traveling or just talking and that maybe you can not do when they are old. Another thing that people regret is not to live life as one really imagine it, if not they cling to a system that is work, money and that by putting the two together you have power, but did not spend time in being next to The people they really wanted or things they really planned to do, living with an idea of “there will be time later" and that often that time does not come or is not enjoyed at the moment that should have been
“All life is energy and energy cannot be destroyed but just transferred” was stated by Leo Simons. According to the Bible, John 11.25, “Jesus said to her, I am the resurrection and the life, whoever believes in me, though he die, yet he shall live”. Brian Keene said,” when you died, you were supposed to live on in the memories of others”. By quoting these people, one -can shed light on the different approaches to the belief – “life after death”.

When it comes to life alone, who wants to think of death, when there is still the moment to live in? Certainly not me. When it comes to my reflection on the life that I have lived for 17 and a half years, there is obviously something that has both brought me the greatest amount of success and happiness. “What is that?”, you may ask, continue reading, and you will find out.

By taking risks it makes you feel alive. It brings a sense of growth because you’re allowing yourself to take further steps in life to have a better life. Another quote from Dead Poets Society would be when Keating quotes “Just when you think you know something, you have to look at it another way.
