About Linda Ellis:
In 1996, an announcer read Linda Ellis' poem "The Dash" aloud on a syndicated radio program--and, to her surprise, it became an instant, meteoric success. Calls came in from people around the country eager to tell Linda how her words had touched their hearts. That was the beginning of an enduring phenomenon.
Live Your Dash captures and expands upon the theme of the original poem: It's not your birth or death that matters most, but how you spend each passing year. Linda shares her message of joy, hope, and positive energy through uplifting stories, essays, and poetry, along with tales of people who have been "touched by the dash," including Bob Dole, legendary football coach Lou Holtz, and American Idol winner David Cook. An inspiring look at life based on the fantastically successful poem.
….a man stood to speak at the funeral of a friend.
He referred to the dates on her tombstone from the beginning to the end. He noted first came the date of her birth and spoke of the following date with tears,
But he said what mattered most of all was the dash between those years…..
….So when your eulogy is being read with your life’s actions to rehash
Would you be proud of the things they say and how you spent your DASH?
