I Know This…I Believe That
I believe that someday there will be one.
I know that I can become a better person.
I believe that I am on the right track.
I know I can lead a contented life, given my current circumstances.
I believe that this may not always hold true, however, as my disease progresses.
I know that I love my wife more than anything.
I believe that she understands this, even if I don’t say it often enough.
I know that modern democracy is superior to every other form of government so far conceived by mankind.
I believe that there must be a better way to govern, yet undiscovered- a government based on thoughtful, intelligent discourse rather than mind-numbing political rhetoric.
I know that one day we’ll cure MS.
I believe that it will be too late for me.
I know that I have many treasured friends.
I believe that I don’t foster these friendships as well as I should.
I know that the odds of winning the lottery are hopelessly slim.
I believe I still have a chance.
I believe that eventually this concept will win the day.
I know that tomorrow the sun will rise in the east and set in the west.
I believe that each day has the potential to be an amazing one.
I know that, like everybody, one day I’ll die.
But first, I believe that I still have a bit of living left to do.
What do you know? What do you believe?
