What Would They Say?

We often read in the obituaries or news articles related to the death of someone, and their life story is summed up in a few concise paragraphs. What would they say? What would they say if we died today? What words describing our life and who were would be written in a paragraph or a couple? What would they say about you? What would they say about me?

Would they say that we were great parents and loved our kids as if the world would end today? Would they say that we were grandparents and that we loved our grandkids as if they were the most precious thing on this planet? What would they say?

Would they say that we were heroic and fought on the soil of foreign lands? Or would they say that we were heroes who risked our life to save a stranger from that burning building or that we jumped into that body of water to save a life? Would they say we were brave in that natural disaster? Would they say that we helped our neighbors in trouble? What would they say?

Would they say that we were generous? That we were humanitarians, who believed in causes and did all that was in our power to help our society? Would they say that we were the kind of person who helped a stranger in need? That we thought of others before we even thought of ourselves?

Would they say that we were smart? Would they say that we were educated in classrooms and universities? Would they say that we were street wise and were trained by the college of hard knocks? What would they say?

Would they say that we touched a life with our compassion, our words, and our kindness? Would they say that we were a good spouse? Would they say that we were a cherished friend? Would they say that we kept them safe? Would they say that we worked jobs that added value to society and the marketplace? What would they say?

Would they say that we were talented and wise? Would they say that we were humble? Would they say that we were strong? Would they say that we were fighters even until the very end?

Would they say that we belonged to a club, an organization… Would they say that we were a member of something and that we truly belonged?

Would they say that we enjoyed life? What words could describe you? What actions would be remembered? Would they say that we cherished our time here? Just what would they say?
