I did not write this caption, but I could have written it.
I believe in planting trees in whose shade I will never sit.
We would all be happier if we all did this.
The artist within us strives to perfect for perpetuity.
The writer within us knows that most of their words are not read.
The caregivers within us know that their efforts will not be returned.
We know we cannot take our efforts and our concerns with us.
We plant seeds for tomorrow even if tomorrow does not come.
Likely, we would likely go mad if we did not do this.
A good parent is a parent that gives to the future.
The future is about the quality of life of the child and the grandchild.
Yet there are those of us who do not believe in the future.
There are among us those that believe the world is ending.
They believe that the end of time is the will of beings greater than themselves.
There is no factual evidence that their beliefs are correct.
Riches are better than poverty. Wealth provides comfort.
Health is better than illness. It maintains our being.
Contentment is better than depression.
To know something is much better than believing something.
To know is a personal fact. To believe is a personal wish.
And every word I write is a shady spot where I will never sit.
