Live a Life Worth Saving

By Anonymous

Live a life worth saving.

That is all he asks you to do.

Help those in need of help, and help them the best you can.

To be patient with others, to refrain from judgment, and to look for the best in them.

To love one another and to treat them as equals.

Simply do what you can, with what you have, when you are able.

Live a life worth saving.
