The End Of The Line

November 27, 2013

The End Of The Line

A story based on fact in the dark days
of grand apartheid, but with the rich
promise and hope that a new South Africa
can bring.

 

 

 

 

“The past is another country”

 

SEA AND SAND

Sea and sand
My love
My land,
God bless Africa
Many sunsets
Gold and crimson
Have dripped on the horizon,
Weeping for the dying day.
Many dawns have risen
In timely resurrection
From their cradles of light
Sunsets and dawns
Dawns and sunsets
I have seen them all
But when,
Oh when will I see that day
When love will walk the common way
To heal my wounded people
And break the shackles around their hearts?
– Don Mattera.
I love that poem.

“If a man is called to be a street-sweeper,

he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted,

or Beethoven composed music, or

Shakespeare wrote poetry.

He should sweep streets so well

that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say,

here lived a great street sweeper

who did his job well.”

– Dr Martin Luther King, Jr.

“Together, one mind, one life at a time, let’s see how many people we can impact, encourage, empower, uplift and perhaps even inspire to reach their fullest potentials.”

The story itself is (telling) the story!

“Life is God’s novel; so let Ultimate Source write it, as it unfolds…”

– me (as inspired by the words of Isaac Bashevis Singer)

“But man is not made for defeat. A man can be destroyed but not defeated. ”

– Ernest Hemingway in The Old Man and the Sea

“There is no friend as loyal as a book.”
Ernest Hemingway

DEDICATION

c

When (or if ever) you arrive in heaven, let faith, hope and love be the wings that carried you there.”
– as adapted from the inspiring words of Jonathan Edwards, former minister in New England, Massachusetts

“The Greatest Race: Living by (with) faith, hope and love is the highest podium any person can reach, God’s podium that anyone stand on.”

– c

Having pursued the goals, the dreams set before us and run the race with persistence and endurance, after giving it all. Then one day standing on the summit of life, breathing in the pure sweet oxygen of achievement, totally satisfied in running the greatest race, the race of life one that ANYONE can run and win.
