History is really just a relay race; a really long, long relay race. There was once a time in our country when important enduring values were seamlessly handed off from one generation to another. The most critical of timeless truths and beliefs, capable of sustaining individuals and families in times of adversity and trial, bonded one generation to another and yet another.
Over the decades and centuries, unfortunately in the relay race of life, the baton of truth and values has been dropped between successive generations. Our country’s founding fathers as well as our own parents, grandparents, and great grandparents sacrificed much for us as their succeeding generations. Our generation has dropped this proverbial baton of American value, and unless we pick it up and pass it on to the next generations, we will have dishonored everybody that went before us and cheated all those coming after us.
A Legacy Baton commemorates the passing of these values from one generation to the next as well as encourages the recipient perhaps in times of their own trial and adversity to adhere and hold tight to these critical and timeless enduring principles.
The Legacy Baton encourages its recipient in three ways. First, a photograph of the giver and recipient immortalizes their relationship. Second, the official relay race baton can be inscribed with one or more appropriate enduring inspirational quotes, phrases, or scriptures. Finally, multiple handwritten notes of encouragement, appreciation, and challenge from people the recipient loves and respects (i.e. parents, grandparents, uncles, aunts, teachers, coaches, pastors, etc) can be inserted inside the baton for the recipient to treasure for the rest of their lives. Placed on the recipient’s desk, shelf, or dresser, the Legacy Baton will always be there to encourage, inspire and lift the recipient up.
