My sister has also left behind a huge legacy around the country with her kind, gentle-hearted spirit and her carseat advocacy. I am still meeting people online that knew of her and were touched by her. One of her friends recently wrote an amazing blog post about child passenger safety. If you have children or transport children, you should definitely check out this post. Diana's friend, Bree, is very knowledgeable and communicated wonderfully the ins and outs and importance of following more than just the law (which is extremely outdated) but also the recommendations made by the people and organizations who know their stuff. Diana's passion about safety of all children was contagious! You couldn't listen to her talk about it and walk away and not wonder if you were doing everything in your power to make sure your children are as safe as they can be. If there is one thing we can learn about "The Accident" it is that no matter how safe YOU are as a driver, you can't predict how OTHERS are going to drive, so we need to take any necessary precaution we can.
One thing that has come across my mind time and time again is 'What kind of legacy am I leaving?' If I am taken from this world tomorrow, would people even notice? If you were to leave this world, what kind of legacy would you leave behind? Would you be remembered as a kind, caring, loving individual? Or would you be remembered as a selfish individual who couldn't be troubled to take the time to help someone else? What are you doing for the greater good? What are you passionate about and are you sharing that passion?
What kind of legacy are you creating?
Until next time,
