I thought I wrote about this before, but surprisingly no. I haven't put down my thoughts on the the reverence of life.

I googled the words of Dr. Albert Schweitzer strangely because I was watching an inane senseless serial on Young Indiana Jones. Here is what I found. I probably read it a dozen times already, and every time I read it, I am inspired. Again.

A couple of weeks ago, on my way to Sentosa, someone recognized me on the bus. "Excuse me, sir. Did you speak in June in Chinese High?" Damn. I'm not only a SIR, I made enough of an impact in one of the guys I talk to, for him to remember me.

Each one of those young men would probably grow up to be much better people than I am.

I admire them, because they stood up to take up the yoke of leadership.
My heart aches, because it is a long, and often lonely journey.
I am expectant, because each one of them will have an amazing life, and I wish I was around at the end of mine, to hear the stories they have to tell.

I hope I didn't screw them up TOO badly. HAH!

I always get uncomfortable when service staff call me sir, especially older people.

I just tell them to use my name.
