This will be my final entry. I moved out of the house yesterday but more importantly I received the call I’ve been waiting for.
They need me now, there is a chap up there with not long left and they need someone to put him right. So it’s up to me. They told me I didn’t have to go; that it was purely voluntary; that they could probably find someone else in time; that they’d make a hero out of me.
I told them that this wasn’t the point. I’m no hero, I’m just a bloke, just a man making the most of himself so that others might benefit. All I want to do is leave the world a slightly better place than when I joined it, that’s all.
It’s all that any real man could want and in that regard we are all heroes, one way or another.
So now I’m leaving this world. I don’t know if I’ll be back, but there are a few people here today that I hope find it a better place than it would have been if I’d not been in it with them. It’s all any real man could want.
