I am no longer young.  But the memory of all that lingers.  In every life you leave your loved ones behind, through death, by omission and sometimes because the chasm between them and you is too great.  You leave your town by choice or by the inevitable unspooling of life.  But at some point you realize that you loved some parts of it.  Even when it is flawed.  You can even love a failing chicken restaurant and a speedway you never went to.  You were young.  When those days come to mind, you will want to call your people, even the ones who are no longer there or anywhere.  You will want to declare: I have loved you through time and space.  It is hard to be us.  It is hard to be anyone.  You will want to tell them, I forgive, I forgive you everything.

The best gifts to give:
To your friend, loyalty;
To your enemy, forgiveness;
To your boss, service;
To a child, a good example;
To your parents, gratitude and devotion;
To your mate, love and faithfulness;
To all men and women, charity.
    —    Oren Arnold
[In the original, the quote is a single sentence.  I’ve modified the format to suit my “poetic” taste.  There is a variation on this quote which reads:  ]
“A Christmas gift suggestion:  To your enemy, forgiveness.  To an opponent, tolerance.  To a friend, heart.  To a customer, service.  To all, charity.  To every child, a good example.  To yourself, respect.”    —    Oren Arnold
[I like both versions – even when it’s not Christmas Season.    —    KMAB]
