Blessing Have you ever wondered what life is like in rock bottom? I'll tell you; you're walking a tight rope without a circus net, with God trying to push you off every moment. On the border line of death, the sole motivation is a glance of brightness towards the end of the tunnel however there is no opening never mind ending. We're jammed, going nowhere, stuck in eternal darkness. When we're cold, cheerless and crying there's merely family to comfort us.

It's time we go public, it's time to protest. I'll end this speech with these final words; it's time we show our denatured fists, reveal our emotions. Show the world we exist. Follow me, share my hope, I shall guide you towards eternal piece in this land of death. If we don't act our children will die sad, following our example." As soon as I spoke these words a strange silence formed. Suddenly one by one people clapped and began following me as I began to lead them towards eternal piece. ...read more.
