Sometimes the one thing worth living for is worth dying for.



Are you familiar with the names Peter Fechter and Chris Gueffroy? If not, it's worth a few minutes to learn their stories, and to remember them. They're bookends to a tragic library of approximately 200 (the total is not known for certain), lives risked and lost for the one thing they thought worth living for. They were considered property of the state, and they decided to take their own lives back. I hope that for one brief, precious moment, they all found what they were looking for, just like the little Kiwi did.

I've watched that maybe ten times Kyle, and I keep getting blurred vision near the end.

Very touching, indeed.

I'm going to take some time to reflect on what really makes life worth living.
