    For doing some thing outstanding for humanity especially in the relation to uplifting children from third world countries.

    I battled drug and alcohol addiction all my life and people have always looked down on me. In my younger years, from when I started drinking at age 12, I never even knew detoxes existed...no help was ever offered to me until my late 20's. Now I'm 6 years sober and work as a substance abuse counselor. I will go out of my way to help any client, whether they are my client or not. I will also go out of my way to help the addict or alcoholic on the street, even if this means just saying good morning with a smile or offering them a bed in the detox I work at. I want to be known as someone who was always willing to give, selflessly, of my time and a kind word.

    That's very generous of you. It's indeed important to stay human and do generous acts, which will mean a lot for some people out there.

      You'd be surprised how little it actually takes to really connect with another human being. A smile or a kind word goes a long way!

    I want everyone to know that I did something for my country and the people living in it or a Famous Anti-Government Man in our country.

    Honestly? I don't care if I'm ever known for anything. I just want my children to know that I was the best father I could be and I would protect them from anything and anyone, even those pesky government people who are so paranoid about me and my NRA brother and sisters. I guess you could say, the best father a child could ask for.

      Sounds like you're the greatest father already!

    II Corinthians 4:18 says "While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen; for the things which are seen are TEMPORAL, but the things which are not seen are ETERNAL." 

    This verse sums it up for me!  I, like every other woman, want my children to be productive citizens in this world and everyone to become sons of God in the next!  Therefore, I would like to be known (to God) for "drawing souls unto Him!"

    James 5:20 says "Let him know that he who converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins."  WoW!  That should give us all "motivation" to "draw souls to Christ!"  Yes, we love Him and because of our love for Him,  look at the "benefits" that come with doing what you desire to do anyway because of your love for Him!

    Luke 15:10 says "Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth!"  WoW!  Another benefit!  How grateful I am just knowing that I've made "joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repented!"  Only by doing what my heart desires!

    Strange stuff, huh?  Not if you "Walk in the Spirit!"  II Peter 3:9 says "The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness, but is long-suffering toward us, NOT WILLING THAT ANY SHOULD PERISH, but that all should COME TO REPENTANCE."  This is also my desire!

      You know...we could really use someone like you in our detox. So many lost souls...

    I want to be known for my writing. Growing up I was known for my blood relations (you're so-and-so's brother), and my day job misrepresents me as a computer technician. People say things like "you know way more about computers than me" or "you must have a degree in computers" but I went to school for writing. Most of my computer knowledge is self taught. So, it would be nice to be known for the thing I'm actually passionate about.

      Writing is so rare these days. What do you write about? Write your heart out and then publish it somewhere so everyone will know wher your real talents lay!
