Legacy
by D. R. Prescott


         Time is a predator. It devours human constructs, takes life and obscures memories. The here and now seem to inevitably succumb to the future, leaving only memories of what has been.

         Memories are fragile and often unreliable. The truth about what was, regardless of good intentions, is often distorted into what we wish it was. History is subject to vagarious memories, relying often on interpretation by future generations. Those verifiable pieces of history surviving the onslaught of time ought to be cherished and used as a firm footing for future achievements.

         To benefit from our ancestor’s experience, we must remember, and remember as accurately as we can, the success and failures of those who went before us. It is the lot of the present to make available to the future a description of the past. That description is our place in time, our legacy.
