It is not to your country.
Your duty is to the will of the
human spirit and its overwhelming
capacity for selfless love and compassion
and to all mankind.
It is to seek and find those most in despair, distressed, traumatized and frightened and to comfort them or remember them in a prayer.
If we are unable to, then our genuine feeling
of thoughtful helplessness is enough, since Love is an energy, and if enough of us give some uncorrupted thought to the beggar on the street or the refugee and the vulnerable, then that energy needs a place to go.
and leaving behind the priceless treasure of love you gave to
those you don't even know, for they will remember it and pass it on long after you have gone.
That is your legacy and it is why the soul is eternal and it is why we'll meet again some day.
