I am a writer of peace, Mel. This will be my legacy to the world, most especially to my loved ones and friends like you..that I dedicated my time to spread the need for peace through my writings. :-)

They said, living a life that matters doesn't happen by accident. It's not a matter of circumstance but of choice.
Thus, a great legacy to me is every act of integrity, compassion, courage, or sacrifice that enriched, empowered or encouraged others to emulate my example. In the end, it doesn't matter how many people one knew but how many will feel a lasting loss when you're gone...

Hi Bai Maleiha,
Yes, peace is so elusive especially to the area of Mindanao. People will always remember you for the passionate articles you so articulately espoused in all your writings. Being a true believer in peace, you will be surely remembered as a peacemaker even after your time. Thanks for your visit and your eloquent comments. God bless you always.

Leaving a legacy to one's family needs earnest effort and conscientious activity intended to do to accomplish your feat.

For me, by setting a good example is one way to be remembered as it speaks volume.

Living with honesty and integrity with deep awareness of sympathy for one's suffering while wanting to do something about it is indeed a great legacy you can pass around to your family.
