NOBODY IS WORTHLESS WHO HAS FRIENDS

That’s right, Clarence!
Try living in the moment
instead of imagining what your life
would be like if it never happened.

Think of:
The people we’ve influenced.
The people we’ve saved.
The people we’ve loved.

Imagine them:
Being failures for lack of us.
Being lost for lack of us.
Being alone for lack of us.

For in the darkest of times,
there is a light that perpetually shines;
a beacon that brightens your world
and illuminates your life.

That is the light of  friendship,
the beacon of possibility.
A chance to “lasso the moon”
with the love and support of friends.

Friends who believe in you and
gather around you in your moment of doubt.
It’s that realization that makes you
know you’re alive. Makes you shout

“I want to live!” It is
your revelation. It is your epiphany.
Your “George Bailey” moment.
For nobody is worthless who has friends.

And you come to find
it’s a wonderful life!
That’s right, Clarence!
That’s right!
