April 15, 2013 - Pray for Boston. by joycefungx April 15, 2013 - Pray for Boston. by joycefungx
This time, this quote is by me.

This one is posted at this moment of great sorrow with a heaviness in the mind and pain in the heart. I may be unqualified to say so, for I've never really suffered loss - it may even sound strident for those of you who've really been through it. Perhaps I would never understand. But here, I humbly offer you a summary of the thousand words and feelings that are swelling inside me.

The dead is never really dead; through us - through our memory, our benevolence, our every tear and smile - they live on.

My heart goes out to you. You who have suffered the loss of a beloved, whether on or not on April 15, 2013.

Stay strong. :rose:

(For those of you who aren't sure what happened: [link])

That is a beautiful expression for what everybody close or far away from these tragic events are feeling. Thank you for sharing the words. My prayers go to Boston. And everywhere where inocents are targeted.

What is dead may never die.

Wise words are timeless.
I'm sorry and I pray for all the ones that suffered such tragedy... It saddens and dissapoints me though.
cause this reminds me that even though we all walk the same road and is unevitable to Die we seem to have a hurry for reaching the end as soon as possible. Our actitutes of selfdestruction.
Fisically we can harm others in the moment but actually we hurt ourselves for we all are a part of a sistem, of an everything.
But our diferences become reasons for fighting over Intead of being means of adding diversity to that sistem not only to ourselves.
I'm sorry for this but more sorry for the lack of reflection on people's mind today and moreso the lack of taking actions for change over that reflection.

Such great minds I have encountered blindfolded by Irrational trivial reasons that they arent capable to understand and overcome.

So careless we don't mind about what happens in the world and the repercussions of what we do, as long as it doesn't affect us... just and only then.

I see how far have we gone, and feel concern about how much far we will go in this black tunnel before we bother to turn back and give a glance to the light once shone upon us so much time ago.

Cattle die, kinsmen die,
You, yourself, must also die.
But one thing, I think, which never dies,
The good name of a man who has earned.

Even though I think these quotes are pretty good
I think there should be put more into the actual picture here. Right now it just looks like you have just simply put some text on a blank color here.
Maybe some text-art, you know? Put them into weird ways? Build an image out of words and so on?

On the same day, yesterday 75 humans got killed and 356 got hurt through bombs in iraq. [link]

And Banksy's words echo trough my mind; “I mean, they say you die twice. One time when you stop breathing and a second time, a bit later on, when somebody says your name for the last time.”

I do not mean to be harsh, but this quote is a slightly altered version of many other quotes that have come before. That is, the picture. The quote in the description is much better.

I do, however, thank you infinitely for bringing this to light on DeviantArt. Thanks for making this quote and providing a link to the information. I cannot say it made my day, but it is important and I will say it again: Thank you.

I will not come up with a witty and egotistical quote in order to make myself seem more important when I say that I hope something comes to light. I hope that those who passed simply won't be forgotten, and I hope that whoever committed this heinous act is discovered and brought to justice. Doesn't matter who or where...

Thanks again for bringing this to light.
