When your life is over, everything you did will be represented by a single dash between two dates--what will that dash mean for the people you have known and loved?
As Joseph Epstein once said, -We do not choose to be born. We do not choose our parents, or the country of our birth. We do not, most of us, choose to die. . . . But within this realm of choicelessness, we do choose how we live.- And that is what The Dash is all about.
Beginning with an inspiring poem by Linda Ellis titled -The Dash, - renowned author Mac Anderson then applies his own signature commentary on how the poem motivates us to make certain choices in our lives--choices to ignore the calls of selfishness and instead reach out to others, using our God-given abilities to brighten their days and lighten their loads.
After all, at the end of life, how we will be remembered--whether our dash represents a full, joyous life of seeking God's glory, or merely the space between birth and death--will be entirely up to the people we've left behind, the lives we've changed.
