"A dream doesn't become reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination and hard work."
- Colin Powell
We writers are a fierce people. With our thoughts as armour and our words as weapons, we dare to dream and strive to succeed. Through the ire of our enemies and the perils of the unknown, we pour our soul through our hands in the hope that one day someone will appreciate our work. We surrender ourselves to the power of Imagination, and in time we learn to wield it with faith.
"What a mysterious thing madness is. I have watched patients whose lips are forever sealed in a perpetual silence. They live, breathe, eat; the human form is there, but that something, which the body can live without, but which cannot exist without the body, was missing."
- Nellie Bly
"If you stand up for God, then he will stand up for you."
A teenage girl of about seventeen had gone to visit her friends one evening, the time passing quickly as each shared their various experiences over the past year. The girl had ended up staying longer than planned - as it had begun to darken outside - and she had to walk home alone. She was not afraid, however, because it was a small town and she lived only a few blocks away.
As she walked along under the tall elm trees, Diane asked God to keep her safe from harm and danger. When she reached an alley, which was a short-cut to her house, she decided to take it. However, halfway down the alley she noticed a man standing at the other end, as though he were waiting for her. She became uneasy and began to pray, asking for God's protection, and instantly a comforting feeling of calmness and security wrapped around her, and she felt as though someone was walking with her. When she reached the end of the alley, she walked right past the man and arrived home safely.
The following day, she read in the newspaper that a young girl had been raped in the same alley just twenty minutes after she had been there. Feeling overwhelmed by this tragedy and the fact that it could have been her, she began to weep. Thanking the Lord for her safety and to help this young woman, she decided to go to the police station - she felt she could recognise the man, so she told them her story. The police asked her if she would be willing to look at the lineup to see if she could identify him. She agreed and immediately pointed out the man she had seen in the alley the night before. When the man was told he had been identified, he immediately broke down and confessed. The officer thanked Diane for her bravery and asked if there was anything they could do for her. She asked if they would ask the man one question: Diane was curious as to why he had not attacked her. When the policeman asked him, he answered, "Because she wasn't alone. She had two tall men walking on either side of her."
Amazingly, whether you believe or not, you're never alone.
