Last night I had a very intriguing and peculiar Dream. What I remember clearly:
On June 23rd, 2010, Strummer entered the world. Surrounded by love, warmth, caring, and good vibes.
On June 23rd, 2010, Strummer left the world. Surrounded by love, warmth, caring, and good vibes.
Strummer was very much wanted. His entrance was greatly anticipated. He was born in his new home with an experienced midwife and several attendants. His parents were overjoyed when they viewed their beautiful baby; their first child.
He was perfect, blonde hair and perfect fearures. After the midwife had gone his parents fell asleep with their new child close by in his bassinet. When his father awoke a couple of hours later, Strummer was silent. A frantic rush to the hospital and valiant efforts did nothing to change the reality. Strummer's spirit was gone, only the empty vessel remained.

This story about the Anne Frank footage popped up on my "AOL Welcome" page when I logged in this morning. After I read the article and looked the the rest of the YouTube videos linked to it, especially the haunting "virtual tour" of their home (hideout), I started to read the comments and then I started to get truly frightened:
This evening I watched a replay of the last interview June Callwood, Canadian activist and writer, gave. These remarks moved me:
Asked about what she may find in the hereafter, Callwood rejected the idea of heaven. “There’s nothing next,” she said. “That’s alright. What you get is a life. A baby is a miracle. You open a baby’s fist and they’ll close their hand on your hand and hold on. What they’ve got is a life to live as best as they can. That’s what you get. You don’t need anything else if you’ve got that.”
She also rejected the idea of God. “I believe in kindness. I believe it’s very communicable just as meanness is. Strangers hold doors for one another. Sometimes they say thank you, sometimes they don’t. Something in us says: `If I hold this door it helps this person, and that person is slightly changed. Great consideration for one another - that’s what’s going to save the world.”
