With all the things in the news today regarding the Gosselins, the "Balloon Boy" family, and many other things, I can't help but wonder, what made them snap? Why is being known and famous, even if it is in the negative spotlight, so important to people? They are definitely leaving a legacy but not the kind of legacy I would want to leave behind. When these people pass away they are only going to be known for "the most public and brutal divorce" or "Lied about son drifting away in a balloon so he could get on a reality TV show" Who would want to be known for that?
Our life here on earth has such an importance. We are role-models to other individuals that are all around us. Regardless of who you know or who you don't know, you ARE being watched. I know that sounds creepy but people are always looking at other people to see how they run their life, especially in the growing adolescence stage when anything someone does is crucial to how that child matures.
I just encourage everyone reading this portion of the blog to just think about the kind of legacy you are leaving behind? What are you going to be known for? Are you satisfied with that? Be all you can be! because God said He created you to be GREAT! And we all know, God's words do NOT return void!
