I said I wasn't going to post anymore for awhile, but this might actually help me out in getting my thoughts organized on my paper.
Has anyone ever read any of Kahlil Gibran's pieces before? I read The Voice of Kahlil Gibran: An Anthology
for my Middle Eastern History classes, and so many of the pieces just leave me in awe, especially 'Let Me Go Peacefully' (which actually gets me a little teary-eyed because it strikes home with some things that happened this summer with my grandma passing away).
It's just amazing to me that his worlds can be so profound 70+ years later, and that there was single religion that he was trying to promote, that his words are applicable across all religions, races, genders, etc.
"I knew I had it in me. And I knew if I fought hard enough, and I kept fighting, even if I kept falling, I was going to get up and do it."
I'm not going to Rupologize!
