We all end life alone - no one can share the experience. While I cannot imagine what it will be like for me, I have lost friends and family who were close and important in my life. It is devastating when it occurs, yet there is always a place to go in my soul where I understand and can accept the tragedy of loss and the peace it delivers.
My hope is that when I face that moment, I can honestly look back on who I have been and know that I was kind and good to people I encountered and loved. I also want to know that I cared enough to listen.
I think there is great eloquence in this;
"...Life is eternal, and love is immortal,
and death is only a horizon;
and a horizon is nothing save the limit of our sight."
From a prayer by Bede Jarrett, O.P.
Now you know who I am...tell me, who are you?
