To anyone out there,
It is dark in here, but warm and nourishing. I can hear sounds and noises in which I can not explain from beyond my realm. I have thoughts and dreams of what a different world would be like. I believe in a world beyond this place, even though I have no proof, only faith. Some here believe it is foolish to believe in an afterlife, but I believe in something more. I hope this message makes it to the other side because I am here to speak for all people within this place. Our ability to communicate is next to impossible beyond this place, so this will be brief. We ask for nothing more than what we hope you ask for yourselves; life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
Life, we are thankful for it. Please don’t look upon us as worthless and not worth fighting for because we can not speak up for ourselves. We are innocent of all crimes, and we should be treated like people with a record that reflects this fact. If we are an inconvenience to someone because of a choice they made, please don’t punish us, because like I said “we are innocent”. It’s true that for now we are helpless against attackers on our lives and we will need your help to defend us, we promise to try not to forget this place and fight for your innocent and just beings, if and when we have the ability. We ask that you cherish our lives and we in turn will cherish yours.
Liberty, we ask that no authority make rules or regulations that will inhibit our natural rights. We have big plans and would like a fair shot at life and our goals. We would like the right to graduate from this place and be debt free in the next. We beg that the people in the next realm not live off our backs and live by their own means. We ask that the graduates leave a clean and worthy environment. A place to be proud of. We ask that all individuals have equal opportunity to grow and prosper. We even ask that you allow us to fail when we make mistakes, so we can learn and make corrections.
Pursuit of happiness, we asked not to be judged by our color, language,shape,size, or what region or country we enter our next life into. We ask for the treasure of choice and a life free from force. A life free to volunteer to pay for services we want and need, and a choice not to be forced to pay for services we don’t want or feel we don’t need. We ask for the the freedom to live as we would life without repercussion. If our actions are not physically or monetary harming another sovereign individual then the task should not be restricted or denied. We ask that the fruits of our labor be ours to keep and use as we see fit. That our currency be backed by something of value.
We ask for a lot, but nothing more than we are willing to give. We understand that the next stage of our life will not always be easy, but we believe in the unforced charity and good will of others to help us through the harder times. We in turn, will chose to help and give when we are able and willing. The place we envision isn’t a heaven or utopia only a place that free men voluntarily act. A place above violence and force. A place possible when people respect their fellow man and live in a way to prove it. If this reaches the outside world our message is “We come in peace”.
