INJECTED AND INFUSED

INJECTED AND INFUSED

By: Darrelyn L. Tutt

At this very moment I'm injected and infused with enough inspiration to begin a massive movement. Immersed in the lives of incredible individuals, my mind is disposed to the magnificent writings and works of great individuals who lived lives of extraordinary purpose and mission.
This week's library contribution shoulders me with:
 Andrew Carnegie, Nathan Hale, and Ludwig Van Beethoven.
All of my new "friends" profit me with wisdom free of charge, compliments of our local library. And to whom do I owe a generous "thank you" but to the provokingly and prosperous man, Andrew Carnegie.
Andrew Carnegie was a leading historical "emergent" in the steel and railroad industry crediting his vision, innovation, and ingenuity to a man who opened up his personal library to him at a young age.
Consider and reflect on the life of an innovative thinker and giver.
------
"When Andrew was a poor boy growing up in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, in the 1850's, there were no public libraries. But there was a man in Pittsburgh who allowed young working boys to read in his own private library. Throughout his life, Andrew Carnegie remembered the wonderful feeling he had when he walked into that library to pick out a book. It was a feeling he wanted other young people to experience.
Andrew Carnegie grew up to be one of the richest men in the United States. But he never forgot what it was like to be poor and to be hungry for books. In his later years, Andrew gave away almost as much money as he had earned during his lifetime. Much of his money went to start public libraries in towns all over the world."
-------
The words, "Andrew Carnegie remembered ..." are meaningful, insightful, and provoking.
Is it not sensational and extraordinary, dear reader, the things that a generous memory has the power to provide.
We must study to become "memory givers" in whatever form we are able.
Be inspired, fueled, and "fired" by this beautiful mind and quote:
"I resolve to stop accumulating and begin the infinitely more serious and difficult task of wise distribution."
-Andrew Carnegie
