The Lesson

by A.J. Dodd

When young, he dreamed of the freedom and independence that maturity would grant.

In his adolescence, he began overestimating his wisdom and understanding of the world.

In his early adulthood, he understood that there was still much to learn.

In his old age, he dreamed of the freedom and independence he had as a younger man, a teen, and a boy.

On his deathbed, he urged us all to cherish every moment.

Did you listen?
