A Masterclass On Love
Who was he? Did anyone really know him?
What motivated him?
How was he able to inspire so many? Both in his lifetime and beyond.
Although I had the privilege of meeting him on many occasions, I could not say that I knew him.
Once as a twelve-year-old boy, I stood next to him as he addressed a large audience, for many hours.
For a few moments, whilst singing, he looked at me. It was as if time stopped. Life itself stood still. I will never forget.
Many people’s lives were transformed by him. But strangely, no one could say that they knew him.
I think about him often. It seems like he is both here and not here at the same time.
Any attempt to describe him or his influence on the world is a futile effort.
Stories about him and the transformative impact he had on so many are legendary.
But we the living must take it to heart. We have no choice.
No doubt the world has forever changed because of him.
In a nutshell, His life was a masterclass on how to love.
Not a strategic love, but a genuine love.
