Journal Question #3 Note

I was recently informed in Islam it is forbidden to write anything on one's gravestone. That is a cultural note that I was not aware of, please forgive me.
As for the topic, it's not necessarily about the gravestone itself. What I would like you to write about is what you would like to be known for. What characteristics do you want your life to display. Do you want people to think you are fun, that you are serious, or something in between? Do you want to be known as an adventurous sort of person that followed their dreams no matter the cost or a stable kind of person that was a rock, unchanging and firm that people could depend upon and was always there, always accessible to the ones they love. I brought up the topic of death only because, sadly, it is not until people leave this earth that how one lived their life is seriously thought. What I would like you do do in this assignment is reflect upon your life; are you where you want to be? If you died today (God forbid!) would you be satisfied with the legacy you left behind? Children are considered one's legacy, as are the accomplishments of someone's lifetime. What is yours? What do you want to be remembered for?

If there still seems to be an issue with this topic please e-mail me at
If you do not attempt to contact me before Monday it will be assumed that you are comfortable with the topic. Thanks
