Immortals

world tree

People never die completely. 

Some parts of them remain in this world.

Like a writer’s written book. Or an engineer’s built building. Or a teacher’s living students who he or she taught a decade ago.

It is in these little contributions to this world that people live for one reason alone.

To bring life into this world before they go.

  1. Beautiful reminder. I was just talking to a woman who was grieving for her dead son and she felt like her life was a waste because he died too young. I reminded her that although his life was much too brief , he had spread joy to friends and family, and people remember him even now for that.
