what did calvin say?

can u take what a cartoon character said seriously?

can u see beyond the surface of the words, muttered by a non-existent, non-living creature who is just a comic strip boy? a boy who talks to his stuffed tiger? a boy who always complain about his parents, particularly his Dad? a boy who hates girls?

well, i can... & this is what he said:
Often it takes some calamity to make us live in the present. Then suddenly we wake up and see all the mistakes we have made. But it is too late to change anything.
if everyone of us appreciates the truth behind this saying, we will appreciate life more. we will appreciate the people around us more. we will appreciate what we have more. we will appreciate our struggles more, & begin to see the circumstances we are in are the building blocks that bring us to the next level of maturity. & when we are able to do that, our life will then be of minimal regrets. it will be more fulfilling. more alive.

well said, *calvin.
