What makes you, you? If it is in what you can do, then what happens when your strength fails? If it is in who you love, then what happens when their love fails? If it is in status, then at most you can take your identity to your grave, and no further. The foundation of a person’s identity is as sure as the elements that make up that foundation. When those elements rust, fade, or pass away, then all is lost.
If only there were a strength that never failed, a love that never gave up, and a book that could hold your name for all eternity. The people in these stories found exactly that.
