But at the same time, we're forgetting that our grandmothers and grandfathers and mothers and fathers are leaving (or have already left) some of the greatest legacies. These legacies cannot be measured in numbers and sometimes, they can't even be measured in words. They've taught us, by example, that it's never too late to do the things that matter, among so many other lessons that we were too self-absorbed to take in.

The good news? It's never too late to start listening now.
