January 30, 1882-April 12, 1945
What is the most significant thing about the two dates listed above? It's the dash between the dates. The dates on either side of the dash are significant because they are when Franklin D. Roosevelt was born and when he died. This isn't a about President Roosevelt, I just decided to use him as an example. The dash between the dates represent everything he did in life, therefore it is most important. After your death has come and gone, what's your dash going to represent? You only get one dash, so you better make it worthwhile!
