All any of us wanted, really, was to know that we counted. That someone else’s life would not have been as rich without us here
I think so, too. I know I felt that way. For years. It was as if I was a character in a movie and the real action was about to start at any minute. But I think some people wait forever, and only at the end of their lives do they realize that their life has happened while they were waiting for it to start.
