I just finished re-reading Five People you meet in Heaven by Mitch Albom!
Once again this masterpiece had reminded me of six very important lessons:
Blue Man- “That there are no random acts. That we are all
Captain- “That’s what heaven is. You get to make sense of
– “Sacrifice is a part of life. It’s supposed to
be. It’s not something to regret. It’s something to aspire to.”
Ruby- “That’s because no one is born with anger.”
Marguerite- “Life has to end, Love doesn’t.”
Tala- “My hands. I bring you to heaven. Keep you safe.”
May we all put in our minds that our lives here on Earth are temporary. We wake up each morning to work, to study and to enjoy. But because of the busyness of our schedules and the concentration we exert in reaching our goals, we forget that each of our actions, from the smallest to the biggest of which, causes both expected and unexpected chain reactions to the people surrounding us.
The life we are living right now unceasingly puts us up to the test. We as examinees in this indeterminable numbered test should respond bravely and meaningfully to the dares and thrills. It is in our responses that make us stronger people.
Out of a hundred individuals, ninety of which are leading themselves to someplace unknown. However there is one, which is YOU, who should choose to bring them Home. Let that be your legacy.
