Like the most of you, I was raised among people who knew – who were certain.
They did not reason or investigate.
They had no doubts.
They knew that they had the truth.
In their creed there was no guess — no perhaps.
They knew the beginning of things.
They knew the origin, the cause of evil, of all crime, of all disease and death.
But one thing I do know now; and that is, that
neither hope, nor fear, belief, nor denial, can change the fact that we are as strong as we choose to be.
It is as it is, and it will be as it must be.
We can be as honest as we are ignorant.
If we are, when asked what is beyond the horizon of the known, we must say that we do not know.
But be ready to be strong for whatever lies beyond there.
We can tell the truth, and we
can enjoy the blessed freedom that comes with this simple decision.
We can destroy the monsters of superstition, the bliss that surrounds
ignorance, and chills of fear.
We can drive from our minds the frightful things that tear and
wound our hearts.
We can civilize our fellow-men.
We can fill our lives with generous deeds, with loving words, with art
and song, and all the ecstasy of love.
We can flood our years with sunshine — with the divine climate of kindness, and we can drain to the last drop the golden cup of joy,
That comes from bracing ourselves,
To triumph over whatever comes to us,
In this enjoyable journey that we call life!
