This Week on Metro Connection: Legacies

MS. REBECCA SHEIR

00:00:09
Welcome to "Metro Connection," I'm Rebecca Sheir. And this week we're posing a question you, perhaps, have pondered from time to time. What will my legacy be? You know, how do I want to be remembered five, 10, even 50 years from now? Well, today, we'll be looking at legacies of all sorts here in the D.C. region. We'll visit the Silver Spring business of a 96-year-old man who's still working full time and is in no hurry to stop anytime soon.

And we'll meet a teacher who's considered one of the best in the D.C. public schools and learn about the impact she's having on her students. But first, we head to the streets of D.C. to hear what kind of legacy Washingtonians hope to leave behind.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE 1

00:00:49
Well, I'd like my legacy to be kind and compassionate and loving to my fellow man, treating others as you'd want to be treated.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE 1

00:00:58
I'd like my legacy to be at fatherhood and friendship.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE 2

00:01:00
I have a three-year-old, so I would hope I would be remembered for being a great mother and I also work for the D.C. Bars, Washington lawyer magazine, right down the street here. And I hope people remember me to be a funny, witty writer.

I like my legacy to be to have had a meaningful effect on a significant part of the world, whether that be people or the environment. And to have left the place better than I found it.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE 3

00:01:20
I would like to be remembered for thinking about the well being of other people. And I'd like to be remembered for having some courage, maybe, to behave in a way that wasn't always approved of by others.
