Discussion Summary

Explorer Marty reflects on what her life's legacy might be, and the group fills in the discussion with their ideas.

Members first relate to the term 'legacy' as one frequently used by organizational fund raisers seeking money for endowments. Others suggest that legacy can mean anything you are passing along (photos and records) from your own or your family's history.

Another member observes that urban millenials, especially,  don't seem to want treasured household goods (or cars) these days.

The idea of creating a Life Story book might be a good example of a family legacy, and the group agrees that  carrying your memory on through the years by whatever means is the broadest definition.
