As you read a history book do you ever see the names and faces of people and wonder what they attributes they possessed that helped their names to be separated from the rest? We hear names like Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther Kind Jr., Mother Theresa and we think that they were blessed with some kind of special talent that resulted in them becoming so famous. The truth is the only thing every person who is remembered for a lasting (positive) legacy has done is they took a stand.
Rick Hoyt took a stand many years ago that took great courage. Through his decision he has inspired many other families in similar situations to realize how truly blessed they are.
What is Legacy? It’s leaving a place better than you found it by living a model for others to follow. I think if we look close enough, those models are all around us of people who are leaving a lasting legacy by taking a stand doing the right thing because it’s the right thing to do.
Enjoy this video of a father and son who have left a legacy for others to follow.
