When he was celebrating his eightieth birthday, Robert Frost, America's most distinguished twentieth century poet, was asked a question, "In all your years, what do you think is the most important thing you have learned about life?" Mr. Frost paused a moment, then with a twinkle sparkling from under his bushy eyebrows he answered, "In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life, It goes on."
We live in a world that is filled with some pretty ugly things - war, injustice, racism, poverty, and crooked politics. If you listen to the news regularly, you're likely to become tempted to say, "This is it. The end is now."
But hear me - Robert Frost was right. Life goes on.
I know there are things that worry you, that cause you fear. These bad things that make up life are real, but never forget the words of Robert Frost: Life goes on.
