One hundred years from now,
It will not matter,
What kind of car I drove,

What kind of house I lived in,
How much I had in my bank,
Nor what my clothes looked like.

One hundred years from now,
It will not matter,
What kind of school I attended,
What kind of typewriter I used,
How large or small my church.

But the world may be. . .
A little better because. . .
I was important in the life of a child.

And, if one can do some good in the life of a child then they can be certain about a change in any aspect of the World to come. If most of us think along the same lines, we can definitely hope for a better future ahead.
