And tomorrow? The sun sinks into the western horizon. The flames of desperation, of sadness, torment and pain, burn the fragments of society, burn the hearts and souls of so many, in this 'green and pleasant land'. And tomorrow? What of tomorrow?
I sit alone in my garden. Listen to the gentle wind swirling through the trees. I gaze at our magical moon and the tears of feeling so helpless, so hopeless, trickle down my cheeks. In a darkened room, lies my son. My son, tired from another day of going nowhere in a nowhere land. With sleep, I pray he finds a few precious moments of freedom from the pain.
I am but one man, one man who will do his utmost to make this world a better place. It starts with the understanding that a positive environment starts from within. In turn, I extend this positivity to my son and the rest of the world.
May we embrace a better way and be here for each other. We can and we shall make a difference. For this must be our legacy to our children. We can give a gift of a better tomorrow, for all living things, on our precious and fragile planet. In peace, compassion and kindness, Gary.
