LEGACIES

– Would Today’s Deeds Haunt your Tomorrow’s Depiction?

“You are likely to be gone 100 years from now, but HISTORY and POSTERITY would be here, to place you where you belonged. They would determine whether you were a MAN among the men of your time, or a morsel of immorality that once existed. Times-Gone-By and the Future Generations shall decide whether you were a WOMAN among the women of your time or part of the problem. They would conclude whether you deserved the opportunity given to be here or a waste in the space of time. The public funds you looted WON’T bestow succor to your memorial, but the humanity you professed shall stand. What legacy would you leave behind?” – Dele Ajaja
