Daily Prompt~ I Was Here

The opportunity to gift a letter to the future inhabitants of a newly discovered planet.

To You,

“But eyes are blind. You have to look with the heart.”
― Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

As you stand on the surface of this newfound world, I ask you to pause and consider my words.  It has taken a lifetime to find them, for that is the nature of the beast.  One must live a lifetime or in the case of the inhabitants of Earth, millions of life times to discover the truth. Which is very simply, love.

Your curiosity will lead you to create.  Carefully, approach the precious landscape, respecting and protecting all that you discover.  Once destroyed, it cannot easily be rebuilt. Accept your fellow man.  Forget about boundaries to designate my land from yours.  Didn’t we learn?  Wars are fought over invisible and man-made lines. Be respectful and share what resources you have with those in need.  One world.

Build your schools and welcome your children through the doors. Promote literacy and encourage problem-solving strategies. Educate them against hatred and cruelty toward another. Watch them at play, you will learn from their innocent wisdom. Be observant to suffering and offer support to ease the struggle.  Cherish your brilliant, your creative, your everyday, for it these individuals that will lead.  Write your mission statement around social responsibility. We cry the same tears; we feel the same pain.  One world.

Cherish your elderly and those vulnerable to life.  Keep them safe and ease their struggles and pain.  They are your elders and your wounded, deserving of compassion.  Spare no expense to bring some comfort, hope and joy into their grayed world.  Humanity.

My world forgot as it spun on an axis of greed.  It is not too late for you, though.  You are fortunate to have a chance, an opportunity to create a world of beauty, promise, and hope, a world that promotes peace.  Are you ready to take on this responsibility?  It is not about you, it is simply about love for another.

Sincerely,

Me

  1. Pingback: Daily Prompts: I was here | Chronicles of an Anglo Swiss

    • Thank you, Chronicles of an Anglo Swiss. I take your compliment as an “honour,” as I know how committed and dedicated you are to the, WordPress, Daily Prompt. I applaud you, as it is difficult to impromptu write. Please know how much I enjoy reading your blog.
      Sincerely,
      Grace

  2. This was a lovely, heartfelt post with, as usual, some beautiful imagery – I particularly love ‘they are your elders and your wounded.’

    • Thank you, Andrea. It concerns me that “we” as a society seem to forget our “wounded” and our seniors. Particularly those without a large income for support.

      Thanks for stopping by the blog and commenting. Enjoy the holiday season.

    • Thank you, Jittery Goat! I “liked” Stony Shows The Way and look forward to reading more of your posts.

  4. Grace- beautiful thoughts so wonderfully expressed. My hope for 2014 is that we can set aside the institutionalized greed and work toward returning our world to the path that you describe.
