70 People Of Different Ages Reveal What They Want To Be Remembered For — And Their Answers May Be Simpler Than You Think

"Making people laugh."

What do you want to be remembered for? Perhaps you want to be idolized as a celebrity, a top Olympic athlete, or a world politician. 

But in a recent video for Glamour magazine, participants ages 5 to 75 answer that very question and prove that oftentimes, as we get older, we just want to be remembered for being good, happy people. Moreover, many of the participants say they want to make the world a better place. 

"I want to be remembered as someone who's loving, caring, and uses her art form to give back to the community," one 22-year-old woman says. 

"Making people laugh," a 37-year-old says.


"A person that helped other people and was kind," a 69-year-old adds.

Their simple, beautiful responses prove that it's those simple, positive human qualities — like compassion, kindness, and positivity — that we truly hope to be remembered for.
