[Essay] Cancer Is So Limited

Just this morning, while drinking a cup of hot milk for breakfast, I read from People’s Journal Tonight dated Tuesday, June 15, 2004 under the Silver Linings column, a text message sent by vicenero@myglobe.com.ph and I just can’t resist but share it with you.

This goes out to those who are inflicted with the Big C and it goes:

“Cancer cannot cripple love, it cannot shatter hope, it cannot corrode faith, it can’t eat away peace, it can’t destroy confidence, it can’t kill friendship, it can’t shut out memories, it can’t silence courage, it can’t invade the soul, it can’t reduce eternal life, and most of all, it can’t quench the spirit.”

My thanks first of all to vicenero@myglobe.com.ph for sending that to Silver Linings and of course to the columnist for publishing it!

Though we ourselves may not be inflicted with such a terminal disease, but many people in our lives, some are those whom we have loved, are loving right now, family members, relatives, and even friends and or acquaintances, are suffering from such. I pray for their strength to overcome whatever self pity they may have indulged in.

I hope this article would bring comfort to you and fill your body with warmth, your heart with love and your soul with peace and happiness.
