One Hundred Years

I read something in your inspiration thoughts section titled there "One Hundred Years" and recognized it as part of something written by Margaret Fishback Powers. I had just recieved a book of her poetry and it stuck with me. She is also the author of the poem called "Footprints". I have written the entire poem below so you can also post it; although I understand the interest in a shortened version, I also read your section on copyright and thought you would want to know.

One hundred years form now
It will not matter
What kind of car I drove,
What kind of house I lived in,
How much I had in the bank
Nor what my clothes looked like.

One hundred years form now
It will not matter
What kind of school I attended,
What kind of typewriter I used,
How large or small my church,
But the world may be
...a little better because...
I was important in the
life of a child.

Margaret Fishback Powers

Thanks for your website - it is a joy to be able to see what everyone is up to and share ideas. My friends and I have been having a hoot looking up old songs. Hope this helps out.
