This topic gives me hope and peace. That when it comes time for us to leave this world we leave it better than what we found it. By request of my Husband.
MONTICELLO, November 13, 1818.
The public papers, my dear friend, announce the fatal event of which your letter of October the 20th had given me ominous foreboding. Tried myself in the school of affliction, by the loss of every form of connection which can rive the human heart, I know well, and feel what you have lost, what you have suffered, are suffering, and have yet to endure. The same trials have taught me that for ills so immeasurable, time and silence are the only medicine. I will not, therefore, by useless condolences, open afresh the sluices of your grief, nor, although mingling sincerely my tears with yours, will I say a word more where words are vain, but that it is of some comfort to us both, that the term is not very distant, at which we are to deposit in the same cerement, our sorrows and suffering bodies, and to ascend in essence to an ecstatic meeting with the friends we have loved and lost, and whom we shall still love and never lose again. God bless you and support you under your heavy affliction
Some think intelligence is the mark of an advanced species but I think its really the psychology of a people that marks their advancements, we now have technological marvels in our hands and have amazing achievements in our sights through our intelligence...But we still as a whole are barbarians killing one another, torturing one another and on and on with no end in sight...Intelligence obviously cannot stop this, it takes a heart...
Hmmmm. Trying to find a message in this .......
I didn’t know Hunter had Tibetan blood in him!
