My grandma wore a gold necklace everyday for years. It was passed down to her by her mother. Something to note about my grandmother: she was a social worker who made little to no profit helping the people she could. Before this though, she worked for a company that had actually asked her to help patients less because she was making other employees, and therefore the company, look bad because they hadn’t been providing their patients with proper care. She obviously refused, and soon opened up a chapter of a volunteer organization in Norfolk that was built to aid people with mental illness. She did all of that while wearing this gold necklace, so when it was passed down to me I couldn’t help but think about all of the wonderful things I wanted to do while wearing it as well. Could I start my own organization? Or maybe something even bigger? These thoughts run through my mind constantly, but I know that as long as I have this necklace laced gently around  my neck I’ll be doing something incredible, and I can’t even begin to imagine what great ideas future generations will have when I pass it down to them too.
