Temperature: So hot hell seems cool in comparison
Mood: Yone oni
On this disastrous day, everything had gone wrong, as if God had given control of my life to the demons of my nightmares. Everything was just going wrong.
And to top it all, I needed to go shopping in the blistering heat of the summer. I was literally stomping my way to the supermarket when I heard a demanding voice:
“You better get out of here because this place will be dangerous in a few minutes more.”
I turned around, and to my shock, I had to hold back tears because, in front of me, there was a little boy, a little angel, who showed signs of Down syndrome.
In one second my mood changed and decided to obey his request
“I see, thank you for letting me know about this matter.” I said
“Of course,” he said, “But you better get out of here because this place will be dangerous in a few minutes more” he repeated his orders again.
I promised him I’d be careful and he seemed pleased with my answer.
Then a minute later I understood what he meant all along.
He and his brother were about to race each other, so the race was the “danger” the little angel was talking about.
I couldn’t help but smile. That was the first time I smiled on that day.
Obviously, our little champion beat his brother fair and square.
There in the finish line were our little champion, his older brother, his youngest sister, and dad. The dad and I exchanged bows, and our little champion granted me a smile and a wave.
And it got me thinking that there are thousands of people like me, who, sometimes can’t see anything but their own problems, or can’t feel anything but anger or hate.
But luckily there are people out there, angels with warriors’ souls, who, have the power to make everything look better, to make the days brighter, and to make us understand that there is love in everyone of us.
