  • if you died tonight...

    what would they say about you and your life?

    Pondering that... it's always been in the back of my mind... life is soooo very short for some, and if my time should come sooner rather than later, what have I done with it?

    I got this quote *somewhere* but don't know where...
    the secret of life is in the sure knowledge of death... for it is in that knowing that each man strives to leave his mark upon the earth.
    I pray that someone would say I made a difference... in a small way, I made a difference by being a 9-1-1, Police, Fire & EMS Dispatcher, a Deputy, a volunteer and a Special Olympics coach... I don't *know* that I have, but I hope I have.

    I would pray that my family would always remember how much I love them and how dedicated I have always been to them.
    My grandmother has been gone 43 years but she is remembered not just by those who knew her but but by those that never met her. She was a simple country woman that loved her family with all of her heart and they have always cherished her. Each new great-grandchild or great-great grandchild is always told of Granny as soon as they can understand what is said. My son, her great-grandson talks of her and she died long before he was born.
    I think she's an angel siting on a star, thrilled to know how much her family loved her, welcoming those that come to live with her and rejoicing about each new family member born.

      I haven't fulfilled my purpose in life yet, so I can't die. Up to this point I haven't really done anything, but by the time I do go people will say that I put serving people above everything else.

        Well, it depends on where you'd go. LOL

        In real life, I would have been a very caring person who would put others first even if it meant giving something up. I would have been known as someone who made a difference in the lives of many elderly people in nursing homes who didn't have family around to visit them. The Mother who probably spoiled her kids a little too much and a person was was known to always smile even if she was having a bad day.

        On the internet, I'd be known as the psycho who had one opinion too many. It's amazing how people are portrayed on the internet vs. real life. Kind of scary!

        I've had people meet me in real life and can't believe I was the same person. LOL [Wink]

          what would they say about you and your life?
          The answer to that question is the same as the answer to this question: What is the best and most satisfying way to bring a woman to orgasm?

            Easy! Let her do it herself.

                  That's just Frank giving credence to his custom title...

                  After reading your post, a familiar and favorite passage comes to mind that sort of sums up my feelings on this subject..

                  "To laugh often and much;
                  To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children;
                  To earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends;
                  To appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition;
                  To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded."
                  - Ralph Waldo Emerson

                  I suppose that is why I became a volunteer EMT and why I'm striving to become a photojournalist. I remember my first DOA as an EMT.. It haunted me for weeks afterwards (and still today) because we couldn't save her. Funny, I cannot remember many of the other calls I went on, but I remember her name, address, everything.

                  With my photography, I want my images to speak to people. I want to be able to affect others the same as I have been affected by such photographers as Dorothea Lange, Jodi Cobb etc..

                  OK, enough of the tangent. Does this answer your question? lol

                      My ex-wife: Good, the ***hole is dead.
                      My wife: (Rolling in money) He sure was a good provider.
                      My Mom: I'm surprised he lived as long as he did- what with his shooting guns all the time and racing around on those deathtrap motorcycles.
                      The senior officers at work: He was just starting to get the hang of police work.
                      The junior guys at work: Now I'm a step on in senority, maybe I won't get laid off.
                      The Chief: 209- who's that?

                        I really wonder what people would say about me. I have no idea.

                            I wonder if she really was INSANE ?
