Dear Brother, Dear Sister, Dear Friend,
As I write the final pages of this book, I find myself overwhelmed by the many blessings that fill my life with joy and meaning. I am thankful to my family for loving me no matter what. I thank my parents for showing me that true purpose is rooted in self-sacrificing love, and I thank my sisters for being my strongest allies. This book would not exist without the love, support, and practical help of my family. I am grateful for friends who make me laugh and always have my back. I am thankful for the teachers who opened my eyes to the power of literature, the demands of justice, and the importance of truth. I am thankful for young people everywhere whose courage inspires me to keep going. And most of all, I thank God for giving us life, carrying us through the storms, and lighting the path to a better world.
Thank you for reading this book. I hope you found some comfort and wisdom in its pages. God loves you, and so do I. May the good Lord bless you with peace and joy on your journey.
“Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good, for his kindness endures forever…”
-1 Chronicles 16: 34
