As I have been working my way out of the hole I fell into with my depression and anxiety disorder, I have discovered a couple of new mystery authors. The book I’m just starting to read Taking Liberty by Keith Houghton on what is usually the dedication page a question appears instead. Before I give you the question that is asked I thought I would give you my answers first, “If it was for someone close to me I would gladly do it, especially for my grandchildren and other people younger than me that I love. If it was for an casual friend or a stranger, once again especially if they are young, I still probably would.” r
Have I caught your attention ?
Are you curious of what the question is?
The question that appears as you begin reading this book is — “Could you give your life to save someone else?”
As a mother, grand mother, wife, and minister I like to think that I would definitely carry through with the answers I gave to this question. But one thing that is part of all animals, yes I’m including humans as animals, survival is a basic instinct woven into all our DNA. So I think unless we are actually in this position we do not really know what we are capable of. When men and women join their countries armed forces, every time a police officer or fire fighter,and any other first responders are called to a natural or unnatural disaster they go to work they go knowing they may never return home again.
As witches we do protection spells and make different styles of amulets or jewelry to give us a little more chance to come out of a bad or possibly fatal situation then other people. At least this is what I believe. I also believe no one no matter what their age is will cross into the Summerland before they are suppose to unless they choose to do so while saving someone else’s life.
So I ask you, “Could you give your life to save someone else?” Why or why not? Take the time to really examine what your heart, mind, and spirit would do.
Blessed be Sisters and brothers
