This is an inspirational poem. Basic gist is: “It's not the date you were born, or the date you died that really matters. It's "the dash" between those years and what you do with it that counts.”
In 1996, an announcer read Linda's Ellis's poem “The Dash” aloud on a syndicated radio program. As a result, it became an instant, overnight success.
Many spiritual leaders have been preaching the same profound message for eons. Perhaps it is the simplicity of her message that reached and still impacting worldwide audience.
I am truly grateful that significant section of my dash is being spent with J.J.
