My friends, love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair.
Why see the world as full of hate or anger, or even bad intentions? Why choose fear of others, even if they are different? Why result to despair, when, even in the darkest times, joy is possible?
If I ever forget this, if I ever, in all my bitching about public transit and whining about life as a cyclist and griping about injuries and recovery, forget to remember this, I’ll be breaking a promise to myself and to a legacy I want to remember.
Let’s not forget.
