Here is a copy of a letter I recently wrote.
Thank you for the thoughtful Letter. I understand that times are hard these days. We must all remember that no matter what else that we know who we love. What we love changes from time to time as we change our wishes, but if we aren't careful and of a strong will our wishes can change us. This is the problem with the American dream. We tend to follow a wish, which is the third tier of our minds, and that is the inverse of the proper order, but we know who we love. We must set that in our hearts and reconcile ourselves to them as often as needed, and live close to home. If someone we love dies, it is bitter anguish, but it is not physical pain unless we make it so. We can live through it, and must for the sake of others. If you feel that this is a worthwhile message, please spread it.
