To feed the hungry and house the homeless 0

Dear Bradshaw,

            Would you give up a lung for world peace? Would you lose a kidney to feed the hungry and house the homeless? If I asked you for your arms to cure cancer and your legs to give sight to the blind, would you be willing? What would you do, Bradshaw, really?

            Jesus, Galileo, Gandhi, what do you think of those guys? Do you think of those guys? Is it possible that, perhaps, just maybe, I might be the next Albert Einstein or Charlie Chaplin or Moses? After all, how hard can it be to part the Red Sea? Let’s see someone part the Pacific Ocean, or hop from here to eternity, or turn the Earth into a raccoon. Let’s see someone win the lottery fifty times in a row, or memorize the Bible, backward.

            Think about Euripides, Aristophanes, Socrates, Plato and Aristotle. Anyone can happen, with or without luck, but who remembers their names and can recite all their sentences by syllable? So many slip into the void of oblivion, volumes of names unknown. Remember Beofolus, Hippintrotter and Qullosophes? Naturally not!
