Light Up the Darkness
I was talking with my friend Tirthankar (from OHAC community), and did want to hear from him how he was after the incidents that happened in his city (Bangalore bomb blasts). Thankfully not many people were hurt, and i could read on his blog, that people are not afraid and are going on with their normal lives. So, i did remember the movie “I am legend“, and the Bob Marley’s attitude cited by Dr. Neville (Will Smith):
“He had this idea. It was kind of a virologist idea.
He believed that you could cure racism and hate, literally cure it
by injecting music and love into people’s lives.
When he was scheduled to perform at a peace rally, a gunman
came to his house and shot him down. Two days later he walked out
on that stage and sang. When they asked him why – He said:
The people, who were trying to make this world worse… are not taking a day off.
How can I?
Light up the darkness.”
