Life With a Purpose

Only a few people will be remembered long after they are gone.  They made a huge impact on the world and it may never be forgotten.

Most of us will not be famous.  After several generations, we will be forgotten.  Yet our lives will still have purpose and meaning.

You may never know how your life has affected the people around you and what the long-term consequences of your actions will be.  That doesn’t matter.  Just know, you will change the world.
