... is doing alright.
Got another great monologue from the show, "Touch"
There are 31,530,000 seconds in a year, a thousand milliseconds in a second, a million microseconds, a billion nanoseconds. And the one constant connecting nanoseconds to years is change. The universe, from atom to galaxy, is in a perpetual state of flux. But we humans don't like change; we fight it, it scares us. So we create the illusion of stasis. We want to believe in a world at rest, the world of right now yet our great paradox remains the same. The moment we grasp the now that now is gone. We cling to snapshots, but life is moving pictures, each nanosecond different from the last. Time forces us to grow, to adapt because every time we blink our eyes the world shifts beneath our feet. Every day, every moment, every nanosecond the world changes. Electrons bump into each other and react; people collide and alter each other's paths. Change isn't easy, more often it's wrenching and difficult, but maybe that's a good thing, because it's change that makes us strong, keeps us resilient, and teaches us to evolve.
Despite all the changes in a short amount of time, I've seen him evolve and grow into an even finer young man. Having to move during his Senior out of his final year of high school was not an easy feat. And as much as I wanted to intervene and show him that everything will turn out okay if he just gave it a chance.. I had to learn to back off and let him choose his own path.
You see as much as we want to shelter and cater to our child's every heartache, sometimes we have to let them hurt, sometimes we have to let them cry, and worst of all sometimes we have to let him be angry with us. He was all of that and more.
