A message to all Ron Paul Delegates on their way to defend my liberties in Tampa.Submitted by dexterszyd on Sun, 08/19/2012 - 15:33
For each of us eventually whether we are ready or not, someday it will come to an end.
There will be no more sunrises...no more minutes...no more hours....no more days...
All the things you have collected either treasured or forgotten will pass to someone else.
Your wealth, your fame and temporal power will shrivel to irrelevance.It will not matter what you owned or owed. Your grudges, frustrations, resentment and jealousies will finally disappear.
So too your hopes, ambitions and to-do lists will disappear.
The wins and losses that once seemed so important will fade away.
It won't matter where you came from or from what side of the tracks you lived in the end.
It won't matter if your beautiful or brilliant. Even your gender and skin color will be irrelevant.
So what will matter is, how will the value of your days be measured?
What will matter is not what you bought but what you built....not what you got but what you gave.
What will matter is not your success but your significance.
What will matter is not what you learned but what you taught.
What will matter is every act of integrity, compassion, courage or sacrifice and enriched, empowered and encouraged others to emulate your example.
What will matter is not your competence but your character.
What will matter is not how many people you knew but how many will feel a lasting loss when your gone.
What will matter is not your memories but the memories that live in those that loved you.
A life lived that matters is not of circumstance but a choice....
(My hand is over my heart as you arrive in Tampa and know that we are all with you)
