i didn’t think about this before…
…but if you were alive, we’d be pinning all our hopes of a better future on you.
with your passing, we found ourselves with no choice but to look to ourselves to be the change, to be the better future we had hoped that you’d bring.
i do wish you were still around, to be a source of inspiration. maybe your message, the message you’ve been trying to pass on for so long, would have penetrated into our lives anyway. maybe it would have. if you were alive.
but now…it definitely has.
