The Most Magnificent Thing Alive
As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again. To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives. — Thoreau
Standing as tall and strong as I may ever be at the ripe young age of 30, I look to my right and I’m reminded of my humanity. This time, this place and that which future moments will never replace. Because as strong as I am, standing through all time’s tests I am the only one that can understand this wild pursuit of happiness.
A God given right that not one should foresake. The purpose driven pursuit of everyone’s fate…
An emotion derived from awe and inspiration. Fortunately, our forefathers decided to dedicate this place as a public sanctuary knowing full well the necessity of preservation.
Standing in this moment I sense the magnitude of beauty’s simplicity. The natural existence of the most magnificent thing alive standing next to me.
