The Intangible Legacy

 By Marilyn Okoye According to the American Heritage Dictionary, legacy is defined as money or property bequeathed to another by will.  When leaving a legacy, the first thing that comes to most people's mind are financial worth, land and property, and historical or notable accomplishments.  In today's instant society we have become a "get it now" generation.  If there is a legacy bequeathed, no one appreciates its true value.  The hard work and dedication it takes to build a legacy is often overlooked.  When we contemplate our legacy, what is it that we really want to leave behind?  Yes, we want our loved ones to be blessed with property, historical accomplishments, and the financial resources to sustain them. But, we want to also leave a legacy that will be carried on throughout generations, an invaluable embodiment of our true essence. This legacy is not tangible.
