Lessons Learned Even in Death…Thank you Tim Russert
6/14/2008 6:45:30 AM    [ Flag as Spam or Inappropriate ]

Words are not enough. Actions will be the test.
I had only started noticing and watching Tim Russert over the past year. There was obviously something very special about him. I only learned how special he was after his sudden death on Friday, June 13, which shocked me to the core.

I have been rooted to the television specials about Tim Russert, the man, both professionally and personally. Wow! What an amazing human being. He leaves behind a legacy of ethics, integrity, hard work, professionalism, kindness, consistency, strong belief in accountability, his faith, his passionate & unquestionable love of family and friends, his energy and joy.

Matt Lauer just asked friends of Tim what good can come out of the loss of him, because he himself could not think of any just now. From me, who did not really know Tim Russert until now, after his death, and hearing from others the kind of man he was, I have learned it is time for me to change my life for the better.

I am not of the young generation to learn and grow while aging as a good, honest, ethical human being. I do work at being honest and ethical, to live with integrity. I try to be a good person and also have great faith. But now as a 62 year old woman who has been aiming at her own dreams these last couple years, it is time to let go of those and think first of my responsibility to help my brother and mother, time to get a paying job that will not only allow me to keep supporting myself and payoff my own debts, but to assist my brother and mother financially and otherwise.

This is the third person who now inspires me to become a better person, to be more proactive in my life with my health so I can live longer, to be more energetic, focused, disciplined in order to make a difference in this world. Even if I have to give up my dream to live in the place where I feel at home, which inspires and motivates me; my dream to become a truly great writer and be able to inspire and encourage others, in order to earn the finances I need to not only support myself but to help others more.

The other two people who inspire me to work harder and be better are my mother and my brother. I pray for God’s guidance to do whatever it is I am meant to do, to help others in this world the best way I can.
