Henry Wadsworth Longfellow once implored us to leave indelible footprints in this journey called life, which would stir a dejected companion to put together the fragments of his shattered life again.
Once we return to the dust we’re made of, our worldly glories would be reduced to a state of insignificance. Wins, losses, gender, skin colour, antipathies, ambition would all be rendered redundant. What would persist is our resoluteness of character, the mettle we exhibited in the face of despair, the compassion we magnanimously poured forth to the needy and our sacrifices, which empowered the meek to emulate our example. Making a difference doesn’t happen by chance but arises out of a personal choice. CHOOSE to matter.
