I subscribe to ‘Positive Quote of the Day’ on the internet. This quote really struck me. I hope that those driving through ‘skull orchard’ and reading the date of my arrival and departure in this world, will know that I did matter and that I did make a difference. Some will remember it negatively and some positively. I hope the positive memories out number the negatives.
POSITIVE QUOTE OF THE DAY
I think the purpose of life is to be useful, to be responsible, to be
honorable, to be compassionate. It is, after all, to matter: to
count, to stand for something, to have made some difference that you
lived at all. -- Leo C. Rosten (1908-1977) American Writer
What happened in the dash between the date of our arrival and departure, as recorded on our tombstone will be far more important than those two dates.
