Short Post: Legacy


Just like Augusts Waters, I don't want to perish to oblivion. I want to leave a legacy; something people will remember me for. I want to leave a mark. It's not easy to leave a legacy but I believe everyone has the capacity to do it. We may not think of it now, but in the future, I am positive we will all leave something to be remembered for.

I met up with a few of my fellow org-mates days ago and it made me think: what was the legacy I left behind our organization? I was the finance committee head and part of the executive committee back in 2009-2010. I can say I was able to raise a lot of money for the organization to fund future activities. My thinking before was every time we have an expenditure, there should also be income. We had a few income-generating projects and all of it were able to compensate all our expenditure. But that was it. What was the legacy I left behind? Honestly, I have no idea. I am proud of org-mates who started the Philippine Geography Olympiad. It was only a plan when I was in position but it only manifested a year after. It started with a humble amount of contestants from schools in Metro Manila, but this year, they had about 96 schools participate coming from all parts of the country. It is also a recognized inter-school competition by the Department of Education. From a small start to something as big and grandiose as it is now, I could not be any prouder. But that was their legacy; so what is mine?

I am still thinking about what I left behind as there really is nothing tangible or evident I could find. Maybe that is not the legacy I need to leave when I perish from this world. Maybe I am yet to leave my mark. Someday, I will find it and when I do, I want to make sure that it will have an impact in people's lives.
