#100WCGU – Wk54 – Prompt: Legacy – 100 words – “More Than Just a Word”

14 Aug

Legacy… most of us know the word. It’s a bequest, or gift or a consequence. For me, there’s a deeper meaning. Legacy was there when my family needed them.

Born from an idea of General Sir John Gellibrand after the end of WWI, he felt colleagues in business were not doing enough to help returned men. As the idea grew, it developed into what it is today. Legacy supports families of deceased or incapacitated servicemen.

For my brothers, 15 and 7, and myself, 12, the loss of our father was tragic yet Australia’s Legacy was there to help us.

      Thanks for the comment.

      While lost, each person who has touched our lives in positive way adds a little to our lives and enhances the legacy we leave for others.
