Legacy is a profound word. It tells us that what we are getting ready to read or hear will be known for generations to come. I like to think of myself as the keeper of a legacy. Each of us has a legacy, whether we want to or not, whether we share it or not. I take pride in every one who came before me, for their struggles, their triumphs and yes, even their failures. That is who I am, who we are as a nation, as a people. I encourage each of you to take the time to preserve the story of who you are, your family’s story, and to fill up that now-empty page with what the future holds.
