In our darkest hour

“When the world comes to an end, this is what shall be played. Mankind, for a brief second will as one, look to the heavens. Some will pray, some will sing, others will hold the one they love, but for a single second in time we, as one will unite under the banner of stars that surround us. 12 billion eyes will focus, 12 billion eyes shall close and for eternity we shall be known as a mankind that when in our darkest hour we could become one and accept our place, but as one mind, one body one soul”

RaiFukuMaru

I found this comment on a video by Paul Collier on YouTube. I was deeply moved by Paul’s music. People think of making money in as many ways as possible, have a Lamborghini, A million $$ to spend and stuff like that. But what if in a while, all that’s never going to matter? What if the world is going to end tomorrow? Will the money matter anymore? Will the Lamborghini matter anymore?

If the world is going to end tomorrow, I shall remember what a random person in the world said. Though I’ve spoken against mankind many times in the past, when I read what Raifukumaru said, it wasn’t hard for me to imagine mankind joining their hands as one in their darkest hour, being there for each other , looking up at the sky. Though we’re born as one, and die as one, in that one last moment, what better way to die than to die knowing that 12 billion hands are holding yours. And what better way to die than to die knowing that “mankind that when in its darkest hour  could become one and accept its place, but as one mind, one body one soul”

And I’ll say to myself, “I’ve had one hell of a ride.”
