"There are some days in our existence when we may start to feel that we are too far away from where or who we want to be. It's as though our lives and dreams are turning to dust and we feel powerless to change anything bad in this often cruel world we live in.
Yet, even during the bleakest days of our recent history when Man's inhumanity towards their fellow being seemed to have been abandoned in the cesspits of desolation and despair; even then the birds sang out their song though they sang their warning in vain as the rest of Europe closed its ears and eyes to the horrors of war that was taken place on their continental doorstep as six million Jews were executed in the Nazi concentration camps.
And when the war was over and the trees surrounding the Belson Camp grew new greenary and the nearby fields and meadows were populated by wild flowers once more, then the birds sang out a new song of hope and lasting peace as they nestled among the branches. Yes, even after the heaviest of storms, birds start singing once more, and why they sing is simply because they have a song to sing; as do we all.
So take heart in the future of mankind and in your own destiny. Take a deep fresh breath into your lungs and sing out your song of life; a song that is unique to you and what you stand for, because you believe that such and such is worth standing for and singing about. Have a lovely day." William Forde: June 23rd, 2014.
