PROFILES IN LEGACY
There are “heroes” among us, you have met them. It may have been a teacher that opened your eyes and your mind in a way that no teacher had done before. Or perhaps it was a Grandparent whose kindness and wisdom warmed you during the darkest of moments in your life. Maybe it was even a nameless stranger who reached out with compassion at a time when life seemed hopeless. All of us have been influenced by others during our life’s journey. Those who inspired us to achieve, to give back to others and to live a life of significance are what I call ‘PERSONAL HEROES”. Some have touched the lives of millions with their commitment to the values of charity and empathy while others perhaps only a few. But it only takes one person to change the course of history for another human being. “PROFILES in LEGACY” is a celebration of those who have chosen to make a positive contribution to the lives of others. Who is Your Personal Hero? Honor their lives by writing about them and how they touched your life. They deserve it and others may share in their inspiration.

QUOTATIONS ON LEGACY BY RANDY SUTTON
The true measure of success in life is not to be found in wealth, but in legacy.
There is no greater honor in life than to be given the trust of another, and there can be no greater dishonor, than to betray it.
