Are you closer to transition? You’ve become emotional and light pours through your cracks as you talk of honesty, compassion towards others, and duty. I’m moved to respectful silence. Whether these realizations have fully dawned on and enlightened you now or been with you for years matters little because I’m witnessing their full impact and what these traits truly do to the individual that is wise enough to cultivate them. Are you even from this world? I think back to the knowledge you’ve imparted to me, the wisdom you have shared. I listen to your friends and the people whose lives you’ve touched and they speak of you with reverence. Reverence. What an honor it is to know you, to be so close to you and be your son.
You scoff at the suggestions of semi-celestial traits in your character but I can think of no other fitting way to describe the way you speak and more importantly, the way you have lived your life. By example. Principles and ideals successfully applied, lived, and tested. You’re victorious and not even death can take that away or diminish your legacy. Your legacy will continue and your children will be it’s torchbearers.
