When I was a kid, my grandfather would sit by my bed every night before I went to sleep. And he’d say to me:” My boy, if you don’t wake up tomorrow, if it turns out that today is your last day on Earth, would you be proud of what you’ve done in this life? Cuz, if you ain’t, you’d better start getting square!” At times, it seems that everybody – even the Heavens- has lost faith in you, mankind. I didn’t. My love, my hope for mankind hasn’t lessened yet. But I have watched you trample that gift, that unique love, the wholeness of perfection you were given. I’ve watched you kill eachother over race, greed, waging war over dust, rubble, and the words of old books. And yet, in the midst of all this darkness, I see some people who will not be bowed. I see some people who will not give up. Even when they know all hope is lost.
Some people, who realize that, being lost is so close to being found.
I see you, my friend. Yes, you, taking time to read these lines, looking surprised. I know it hasn’t been easy for you, since childhood to now, all the pain, the hardship you endured. You may love someone, and you love with no thought of yourself. Even though you know that maybe you will not be loved with the same intensity.
You, my friend. You are the reason I still have faith.
