Letter: Life is about living, Patric said

Canadians are free to reach out to pure thought if they choose to, writes J. O'Sullivan.

As he looked at the green valleys with water in the distance, Patrick thought of the people around him and wondered how they might benefit from hearing another view of what lies ahead for them.

He bent down, and picked up a bright green leaf: not just any plant, a shamrock— three-leaf clover.

“That’s it,” he heard himself say.

“Do you want to live always, having fun with huge numbers of friends? Happy forever, loved and being loved? No more problems ever? One answer, then, will be three in one and one in three.

“Life is about living: not just about movement, time and space, change and decay. It’s about truth, justice and totality.”

Canadians are free to reach out to pure thought if they choose to. It’s not the case all over the world.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day.

J. O’Sullivan, Grand Forks
