In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “A True Saint.”
In 300 years I would like to be remembered as the Patron Saint of Determination. I would like to be remembered as someone that never stopped fighting for what I feel is right. Never stopped searching for the truth. The guy that never backed down from defending that truth.
In our society today it is fashionable to never stand up for anything. Because if you stand and say that one thing is right then you are in effect saying that something else is wrong and that means that whomever believes that other thing then they have to be wrong. But I stand by the old well used slogan that if you don’t stand for something then you’ll fall for anything and that is so true and you can see it in everything today. Standing for something is believing in something and because no one wants to stand for anything they also believe in nothing. At least in action. If you asked them they believe in a lot of things but if you watch their actions then you can see that they believe in nothing.
So in 300 years let them remember me and say that the Patron Saint of Determination spent his life doing and standing for what he thought was right. He did it with love, compassion, and true hope that he would lead someone else to the truth and that they would have a better life because of it.
