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. :p

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.
