I have so that you may have life and have it to the fullest. In spite of the dangers and tribulations someone went through, life is still precious.
An 87 year old survival Mr Ignacy shared his experience with us. how he lost his family members and reconnected with his brother. He is a Polish citizen of Jewish origin. He was held in many places from 1940 until April 1945 at the liberation. In his sharing of the story, you could see the innocence in him. One thing though that struck me was his view about life. He looks optimist and positive despite undergoing such dangerous moments.
After he narrated the story, it is really God's grace that he survived even to live this long still able to share that experience with humour. One of his friend was killed by people with garden folks after managing to run away from the SS another one he was with died 3 days later after being liberated.
For me, he is an example of everything that is positive and life giving. indeed he has life to the fullest. it all raises questions on how I view life too. i have to check this now...
