My dear,

Today, someone’s heart has been broken. Today, someone lost their child. Today, someone’s father died in a car accident. And today, a child went without food.

But don’t give up on the world.

Although the world is full of suffering, it is full also of the overcoming of it.

Today, someone fell in love. Today, a beautiful child was born. Today, a nurse, a firefighter, and a police-officer all saved the lives of complete strangers. And today, a child received a helping hand just when they were about to give up.

Don’t give up on the world just yet my dear.

Falsely yours,
Helen Adams Keller
