Echoes In Eternity


"What we do in life. echoes in eternity."

Eternity As defined by Sir Webster from the nearby Kingdom of "Dictionary" ( it's close to the foreign country of Thesaurus): Eternity is infinite duration. IMMORTALITY: a seemingly endless or immeasurable time: "Throughout eternity."

My brothers, this is what matters in life. It's not the cars we drive; the girls we date; the public offices we hold, but our ACTIONS that will echo forever more, long after we are gone.

During a very dull seminar on how to be successful with an E-business, an elder gentleman was giving his testimony about how he made his millions. Mostly it involved stories of trial and tribulation. However, one point stood out. During his talk, about his time in the military during WWII, he stopped for a moment and said, "It's hard to believe that the generation from the WWII era was the last great generation."

Now this woke me up from what was about to be a very good nap. You see I'm a young man, at barely 24 years of age, and this man was telling me that my generation was lazy, that we cared more about what felt good, rather than what was good for mankind. This got me thinking. And this is primarily the reason for this message.

Is he right? Are we just a bunch of spoiled kids, who don't appreciate anything? Is chivalry dead?

I'd like to think not; however, the evidence points in a different direction.

We have guys out there who sit at home and don't support their family. There are moms and dads alike who just treat their children like crap. And don't forget crooked politics, money hungry tycoons, and people who just don't do anything to better the world.

So my brothers I humbly remind you of your obligation to aid and assist those in need. Give back to your community. Make it known that we are not a generation that just wants to freeload and take advantage of what our forefathers have put together for us.

Let the world know that chivalry is not dead. Things like HONOR, RESPECT, and VALOR are still qualities that exist. Show the world that there is a group of men and women who still believe in what our ancestors put together for us, just a few hundred years ago.

The next time you see an opportunity to make a difference in someone's life, no matter how big, take the time to do so. And remind them that there is still some good left in this crazy world. Remind them that people helping people is how we got to where we are today and promote them to pass it along.

My brothers, I hope you take this and reach deep down inside, and find out what you are made of. Go out in your community and make a difference, and it will be those ACTIONS that echo on into eternity.

God Bless
