An Earthmark is not something you were born with. It is something that you’ve earned. You’ve walked the road. You’ve sprinted, danced, crawled, jogged, strutted, wandered and stumbled it. You’ve done your time. You’ve played the game. You’ve fallen. You’ve triumphed. You’ve faced fear. You’ve listened. You’ve made choices. And mistakes. You’ve missed the bus. You’ve seized the day. You’ve loved. Perhaps lost. You’ve laughed and wept. You’ve touched, smelled, tasted, heard and seen. Whatever your story, you can say: “I have lived.”
