Legendary

When does one die? While this question seems both simple and obvious, take a deeper thought. Do you die when people stop saying your name? “Heroes get remembered, but legends never die. Follow your heart kid, and you’ll never go wrong.” says Babe Ruth in the 1993 movie The Sandlot. The statement (legends never die) is physically impossible, but mentally it has a ring of truth. Columbus will never die–he will always be the person who (re)discovered North America. No one can take that away or argue that fact; no one can go back and change it. To live ones life saying that one wants to be immortal and never die is stupid. However, to say that one wants to make something of ones self, to be something and somebody, to have a dream and plan to get it–that is honorable, and if carried out, makes one a legend.
