I will leave you with this Poem.
One Solitary Life
He was born in an obscure village,
the son of a peasant woman.
He grew up in another village,
where he worked in a carpenter's
shop until he was thirty.
Then for three years he became
a wandering preacher.
He never wrote a book.
He never held an office.
He never had a family or owned a house.
He didn't go to college.
He never visited a big city.
He never traveled two hundred miles
from the place where he was born.
He did none of those things one
usually associates with greatness.
He had no credentials but himself.
He was only thirty-three when the tide
of public opinion turned against him.
His friends ran away.
He was turned over to his enemies
and went through a mockery of a trial.
He was executed by the state.
While he was dying, his executioners
gambled for his clothing, the only
property he had on earth.
When he was dead he was laid in
a borrowed grave through the pity
of a friend.
More than Twenty centuries have
come and gone, and today he is the
central figure of the human race
and the leader of mankind's progress.
All the armies that ever marched,
all the navies that ever sailed,
all the parliaments that ever sat,
all the kings that ever reigned,
put together, have not affected
the life of man on this earth
as much as this
One Solitary Life.
Love and Blessings,
