    I would like to be remembered as on who encouraged people. Compliments are easier than criticism and everyone like to be encouraged.

    I think it's what I will be remembered for - the guy who thought a lot about what he'd said, and meant every single word of it.

    I would like to be remembered for being truly kind and compassionate to people - not just "nice" because nice is sometimes phony, but truly kind.

    My very first thought was..........feeding others.

    Then came:

    growing food
    giving the benefit of the doubt
    speaking my mind
    time management
    rearing my children

    It came back to " feeding others"..........we ALL must eat!

    There is no distinction in the classes or the religions, the haves or the have nots.........we ALL must eat.

    This is the one thing that I do well..............feed the hungry.

    I have made it known to my family.........do not bury me, give my body to science.........but if they wish a memorial, let it be said.............no one around me went to bed hungry.

    teaching others to place more importance on working on their inner self than on having all the latest gadgets, wearing brand labels etc.  I would love to help more people to feel good about who they are inside. I believe this is the answer to changing our world for the better

    No need to be remembered. Life in itself is enough. Why you wanted to be remembered. Simply fall in love with life that is more than enough.

    If I could be remembered for one thing, I would want it to be my passion. Everything I've done, whether it is work, school, voluntary work, daily life, relationships, regardless, I've always given 120%. I was raised in the understanding that you give your all, and then some, and nothing less.

    I would want to be remembered for shouting "I am proud to be a gay guy" in the mall....even though it is very obvious that I am a woman.

    Haha! That's probably a strange answer, especially compared to all the wonderful and thoughtful answers this question has gotten so far. But I really feel like that one action spoke a lot towards my character, and my character is what I want to be remembered for.
