- What Matters
The world is bleak and often feels hopeless.
But, when you look closely there is always a tiny flicker of light in the darkness.
A flicker is the only hope we have sometimes.
A hero is the people we look up to in crisis when there is no one else to turn to.
A hero is a person who saves the life of another when the lights are out.
A hero is the light everyone follows.
A hero is the flicker of light and our hope.
When the light dies a light rises even more beautifully.
When the world seems bleak and dead a light sparks you.
You become a hero and have a new definition of life.
And maybe just maybe a hero can turn the lights back on and reveal everlasting hope.
