The Will

The other night, while driving home from work, I happened to catch a segment of a radio show that really touched me. Radio personality Don Jackson, of Toronto's CHFI Radio Station, recounted a story which he first spoke about on his blog in November of last year:

Charles Lounsbury, who died in an Illinois mental institute in 1916, left behind a last will and testament that is not only touching and perhaps inspirational but serves, I think, as a reminder to us all....

“...I devise to boys jointly all the useful idle fields and commons where ball
may be played; all pleasant waters where one may swim; all snow-clad hills where
one may coast; and all streams and ponds where one may fish, or where, when grim
winter comes, one may skate; to have and to hold the same for the period of
their boyhood..."

Read the whole blog post and touching last will and testament here.
