A friend ofmine once described my concept of being a Legacy Dad as the Yiddish concept of mensch. So, here is my definition and expression of what a Legacy Dad/Mensch is. Salute!
Mensch means "a person of integrity and honor according to Leo Rosten the Yiddish maven and author of The Joys of Yiddish, mensch is someone to admire and emulate, someone of noble character. The key to being “a real mensch” is nothing less than character, rectitude, dignity, a sense of what is right, responsible, decorous.
A Legacy Dad strives to:
Display an altruistic attitude. Give to and help others simply out of respect for humanity and without an expectation of return.
Help as many people as possible, change as many lives as possible.
Do the right thing always. Set the example for others to follow.
Live your character, morals and values openly and daily.
Be the best husband, father, Christian and man you can be through faith, prayer, accountability and honesty.
Leave the world a better place because you were here.
